Campus Life


At Eagle Hill, the life that surrounds the Academic Program is as integral to learning as math, science, or the arts. Our philosophy of respect, tolerance, and acceptance for others is reflected in the many community service organizations we work with each year. Health and wellness starts with our full-time, on-campus nurse, and continues with the comprehensive programs that help our students and staff attain and manage a healthy lifestyle. The popular After-School Enrichment Program provides many students with an opportunity to extend their school day with additional study social activities, all within a structured environment. For students who wish or need a boarding school experience, the Residential Program provides a five-days-a-week experience managed by full-time residential faculty members.
