Small classes require students to be on their toes and give students a comfort level and chance to participate. The arts are required of every Eaglebrook student with a requirement of two art electives each year. Brendan shares his newfound passion for art.

Eaglebrook afternoons include a one hour study hall directly after school; followed by sports; a bit of free time; then, dinner. Evening study hall is required of all boarders.

The advisor program is key component at Eaglebrook. Students regularly interact with their faculty advisor and have a formal meeting called home night- over dinner- every other Wednesday.

Athletically, students must play a sport each term. Opportunities to try new sports are available throughout the program. Brendan says soccer, football, hockey, and lacrosse are the big sports with Eaglebrook boys benefiting from first rate facilities for all sports.

"Eaglebrook has been the best decision I've ever made in my life," Brendan.
