Eaglebrook School is an independent junior boarding school for boys in Deerfield, Massachusetts. It is located on the Pocumtuck Range near Deerfield Academy and sited on a 750-acre (3.0 km2) campus which is also preserved by the Deerfield Wildlife Trust.
Eaglebrook has a student body of approximately 260 boys in grades six, seven, eight, and nine (forms 3 through 6). Girls may only attend if their parents work or live on campus. Eaglebrook has its own alpine ski area (the Easton Ski Area), indoor swimming pool and a state-of-the-art hockey rink arena indoors. Whipple Pond, located in the center of campus, is stocked with trout and bass for fishing in the spring and fall. In the winter the pond serves as the water source for snowmaking. The Chase Learning Center, at the heart of campus, includes classrooms and a multi-purpose assembly area which is called the "Pit". There are two other classroom buildings for science, and for arts, including digital photography, woodworking shops, stained glass and many more.
Part of Eaglebrook School's mission is "to help each boy come into confident possession of his innate talents, improve the skills needed for success in secondary school, and establish values that will allow him to act with thoughtfulness and humanity".

In 2002, Andrew Chase ’73, son of Stuart, grandson of Thurston, and Eaglebrook’s former director of development, became headmaster. He still holds this position.
The campus has undergone extensive massive upgrades since the mid-1990s. Baines House and the Thurston C. Chase Learning Center have been renovated. The Schwab Family Pool, and the McFadden Rink at Alfond Arena and a new track and field facility have been built in the late 1990s, and two new dormitories, Kravis House and Mayer House, were completed in the early 2000s. In 2007, a major renovation was undertaken on Flagler House, Halsted House, and Taylor House. The Learning Center was extensively renovated at that time, also. During the summer of 2010, the Sports Center was renovated, adding two new international squash courts, bringing the total to six, a new student lounge and student fitness room, and a 50-kilowatt solar panel system for the roof of the gym.
