Associate Director of Admissions

Job Description

Eaglebrook is a school for boys in the sixth, seventh, eighth, and ninth grades.

Eaglebrook welcomes boys of any race, nationality, sexual orientation, or religion, and all share the same privileges and duties.

Eaglebrook’s role is to help each boy come into full and confident possession of his innate talents, to improve the skills needed for the challenges of secondary school, and to establish values that will allow him to be a person who respects individual differences and acts with thoughtfulness and humanity.

At the heart of the school is the shared life of teachers, their families, and boys working together. Teachers make learning an adventure and watch over each boy’s personal growth. They set the academic tone, coach the teams, serve as dormitory parents, and are available for a boy when he needs a friend.
