Eagle Hill School believes in learning diversity, not disability, discarding notions of boxes and limits and empowering students with self-knowledge, self-confidence, and self-advocacy skills.
With innovation, tenacity, and trust, faculty not only teach students; they reach students, who learn to use their strengths to compensate for weaknesses and triumph over their past.
In this immersive boarding school environment, Eagle Hill helps students achieve far more than they thought possible-from high school graduation to preparation for college and a fulfilling future. Eagle Hill School is a co-educational college preparatory boarding school that provides an individualized education for students diagnosed with learning (dis)abilities including Dyslexia and Dysgraphia and ADD (inattentive type).
