At Eagle Hill, a distinguished faculty offers a wide range of courses in our college preparatory program of studies. Students are challenged with demanding coursework in the traditional disciplines, as well as a diverse offering of elective courses, and are provided with the opportunity to pursue their interests and passions in the creative and performing arts. Most importantly, each student’s specific academic needs are given careful consideration as a program of study is developed under the guidance of the student’s academic advisor.

Nine-Term Schedule

One of the most important and innovative ways in which Eagle Hill School manages to act on the specific needs of each student is our curriculum design.

Instead of trying to force each student's schedule into a rigid calendar of semesters and quarters, Eagle Hill School’s calendar is a flexible matrix of six daily class meeting times over nine academic terms. Individual class sections can meet in a nearly unlimited range of configurations, allowing students to pursue their academic preparation in ways that make sense for their subject and their individual needs.

Students are placed in very small sections, averaging five students apiece, based on consideration of multiple data points such as student interest, achievement, social development, and learning preferences.

An overview of our nine-term schedule and details about this unique approach can be seen in the video below.
