Eaglebrook School is an independent junior boarding school for boys in Deerfield, Massachusetts. It is located on the Pocumtuck Range near Deerfield Academy and sited on a convert|750|acre|km2|sing=on campus which is also preserved by the Deerfield Wildlife Trust. Eaglebrook has a student body of approximately 280 boys in grades six to nine (forms 3 through 6). Girls may only attend if their parents work or live on campus. Eaglebrook has its own alpine ski area (the Easton Ski Area), indoor swimming pool and a state-of-the-art hockey rink arena indoors. Whipple Pond, located in the center of campus, is stocked with trout and bass for fishing in the spring and fall. In the winter the pond serves as the water source for snowmaking. The Chase Learning Center, at the heart of campus, includes classrooms and a multi-purpose assembly area which is called the "Pit". There are two other classroom buildings for science, and for arts, including digital photography, woodworking shops, stained glass and many more.

Eaglebrook School's mission is "to help each boy come into confident possession of his innate talents, improve the skills needed for success in secondary school, and establish values that will allow him to act with thoughtfulness and humanity".

The school's chief athletic rival is Cardigan Mountain School.

History

Founded by Howard G. Gibbs in 1922, Thurston Chase, the second Headmaster at Eaglebrook, started a family tradition with O. Stuart Chase becoming the Headmaster in 1966 after his father retired, and Andrew C. Chase, Stuart's son, accepting the position of Headmaster in 2002. In the 1920s Howard Gibbs asked Roger Langley, the athletic director, to start a skiing program for students winter recreation. It was the first full-time junior ski program in the United States.
