Eagle Hill School has a long history of welcoming students from all around the globe. Our international population comprises about 10% of the student body, representing an average of ten different countries.
Eagle Hill’s vibrant international community affords all of our students cultural awareness and the ability to view themselves as part of a global community. One element of our mission and philosophy is to inspire our students to be internationally minded students who embrace the differences in the world that they will one day inherit.

IB Diploma Programme
The International Baccalaureate is a nonprofit educational foundation offering prestigious, internationally minded educational programs. Its diploma program is recognized and respected by leading universities around the world. Both the IB diploma and the traditional high school diploma are offered at Eagle Hill.
Students who do not enroll in the full IB Diploma Programme will continue to have the opportunity to develop their own unique courses of study in the Eagle Hill tradition, but may also enroll in an IB course or two in order to pursue particular areas of interest in a way that is specially recognized by colleges and universities.
