Our students discover engaging classes, teachers, and peers, and actively contribute to a community that encourages participation in the arts, athletics and other extracurricular opportunities.

At Eagle Hill, our students and their families discover a specialized education for children with learning disabilities, one that suits each child’s strengths and needs, within an environment that is as traditional as possible. Our mission is clear: to provide individualized, academic remediation for children with language-based learning disabilities, and help them develop the skills and strategies to successfully transition to their next school. We believe that everyone can learn with the right kind of intervention. Students learn in different ways, so our research-based teaching methods and customized programs vary to suit each child’s learning profile. And, since children with learning disabilities often experience difficulty in social skills development, remediation of these skills is also provided.


The supportive, nurturing environment at Eagle Hill is key to the development of socially competent and emotionally secure children. Here, there is a recognition and acceptance for a variety of learning and social styles. But beyond that, our onsite team of social workers, school counselors, and psychologists ensure that there is always someone with additional support and expertise if needed. Our faculty genuinely enjoys children and consistentlymodels their support and acceptance of all of our students. Every class and program is structured so that all students have an opportunity for success. By the time our students leave Eagle Hill, they are well on their way to developing the self-assurance they need to learn, and the confidence to advocate for themselves. At Eagle Hill, we are committed to making learning enjoyable once again, and to providing our students with a sense of accomplishment as they make their way through each day. That is why our program is not only child-driven but also child-friendly. Quite simply, our students are happy to come to school. In addition to an intensive and customized academic program, they also enjoy art, music, athletics, and an extensive list of afternoon activities. Founded in Greenwich in 1975, Eagle Hill School is an independent, co-educational day school and five-day boarding school enrolling 250 students ages 6-15 from the tri-state area.

ways to encourage each student to harness his or her strengths for continued progress, while devising strategies to engage students in learning methods that suit individual skills. CH-CH classes are both active and challenging. For example, students in a Spanish class may study a song, use its lyrics to hone speaking skills and engage in


group work to examine the piece’s cultural nuances. Then, they may create their own lyrics to the same tune, cementing their understanding of a particular set of vocabulary terms. Our layered approach to instruction provides students with meaningful interactions and a deep understanding of academic material. Visit www.chch.org for more information.
