“I wasn't looking for a school with a program for learning diversity.
I was looking for a school where learning diversity is the whole program.”

The Successful Eagle Hill Candidate
Applicants should have average to above-average cognitive ability as measured by the WISC, WAIS, or Woodcock-Johnson Tests of Cognitive Abilities. Eagle Hill is able to work with students who display relative weaknesses in processing speed and/or working memory.
An Eagle Hill education begins with the fundamental belief that all students must be understood as individuals. With an average class size of six students, learning is individualized and tailored to meet the specific learning needs of each student. Eagle Hill offers instruction at the foundational level in the areas of written expression, reading, and math, while also providing a full array of challenging and interesting courses. Eagle Hill School utilizes specific reading approaches, small classes, honors coursework, the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, and multi-sensory teaching strategies to meet the diverse learning needs of our students. At the same time, Eagle Hill offers an extensive catalog of classes in the traditional academic subjects as well as the arts, engineering and design, physical fitness, and pragmatics.
Eagle Hill works with students identified with ADHD, the inattentive subtype. Additionally, Eagle Hill School can provide a program for students who are distractible and/or inattentive or who have difficulty with executive function skills. We are not able to support a student who displays significant hyperactivity, impulsivity, or difficulty with self-control.
At Eagle Hill, we feel it is important to work with the whole child and that students who are away from home during their teenage years need to continue their social development while they are at school. We provide a nurturing and structured environment, and we work with students who are free from primary emotional, social, or behavioral issues. Eagle Hill candidates are emotionally healthy, and, once enrolled, are willing to work closely with the faculty and put in the effort to become successful students.

Curriculum Design and 9-Term Schedule
At Eagle Hill School, no two students ever have the same academic class schedule, and it would not be unusual for a student to take a writing class that offers support and take Algebra II or Pre-Calculus as well.
This short video explains our curriculum design and 9-term schedule.
