At Eagle Hill, related services are not isolated entities; rather, they reflect our school’s goal of promoting an integrated approach to the development of the whole child. These services are designed to complement the program by addressing student needs that extend beyond the classroom.

All related service specialists ensure that their work with children is integrated with the rest of the child’s program by working in close consultation with teachers and educational coordinators.

The mission of the Speech and Language Department at Eagle Hill is to expand language-based communication skills for students who demonstrate diagnosed vulnerabilities in this area.

The Psychological Services Team is comprised of school psychologists, social workers, and school counselors. The counseling staff provides services through teacher collaboration and individual/group student sessions.

Uniform Guidelines:

At Eagle Hill, we take student learning seriously. It is our experience that when students follow a dress code and are neatly attired, they have increased self-esteem and improved attention, thus improving their overall approach to learning. Please refer to our website https://www.eaglehillschool.org/campus-life/dress-code for additional information on dress code.

Admissions Deadline: Applications are accepted throughout the year; however, families should apply as early in the school year as possible for appropriate placement.
Mission Statement:

Eagle Hill School, a life-changing experience, offers children who learn differently the opportunity to grow into capable, resilient students with the self-confidence and character necessary to meet the challenges they will face beyond Eagle Hill.

Philosophy/Belief Statement: Eagle Hill offers a language-based, remedial program committed to educating children with learning disabilities. The curriculum is individualized, interdisciplinary, and transitional in nature. A secure, structured, nurturing environment supports and stimulates the development of the whole child. As a result, children learn to view themselves as competent individuals with a strong sense of self. In an environment that recognizes and embraces diversity, Eagle Hill teaches children an array of strategies and skills to manage their learning disabilities effectively at school and at home. Eagle Hill helps children gain the self-esteem necessary to initiate, nurture, and maintain friendships. Inherent in the Eagle Hill philosophy is the development of children with strong moral and ethical character. Children leave Eagle Hill with confidence in their academic abilities, a true belief in their worth as human beings, and the strategies necessary to meet the challenges of their new school and social settings.
Notes/School Information:

Welcome to Eagle Hill School!

For more than four decades, Eagle Hill has helped children with language-based learning disabilities become successful learners. Eagle Hill has a stellar reputation in the region and in the field of specialized education - and I'm excited to be joining the Eagle Hill community at this pivotal time.

The COVID-19 health crisis has changed the way we teach, learn, and work. It has also reinforced how important education is - particularly for students who learn differently. At Eagle Hill, we've always been incredibly proud of our personalized educational program, and now we know we can deliver an exemplary program whether we're on campus or online.

As we navigate through these challenging times, we continue to focus on the individual needs of each student. Every student at Eagle Hill has great strengths, and our highly trained teachers will get to know and understand your child, build on those strengths, and support the skills that make students successful in school and in life.

Our teachers work with an incredible team - staff members who provide services that round out a child's education. Members of the speech and language and psychological services staff are integrated into classes, collaborate with teachers, and work together to ensure that each child has the services they need to thrive at Eagle Hill.

You may be wondering if this is the right time to change your child's school or if the right school can make a difference for you and your child. Come visit us: meet with our admissions team, ask questions, and learn how Eagle Hill transforms lives.

We have helped so many students become confident and successful. We hope to have the opportunity to help your student flourish too.

We look forward to meeting you!
