School Notes

  • Eagleton School is a residential psycho-educational treatment center for boys and young, men with, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Developmental Disorders, Psychiatric Disorders, Emotional Disturbances, trauma issues, challenging behavioral problems, and/or learning disabilities.  A structured milieu facilitated in an open setting provides socialization, challenges, and opportunities for working toward a positive self-image and reintegration into home and community.  Eagleton operates its residential/academic program year round providing intensive education and counseling, and unique experiential and pre-vocational opportunities in a safe, predictable environment. Eagleton School has successfully provided 24 hour residential, educational and therapeutic programming for many generations of adolescent boys during the past 38 years of its existence.  The school is nestled on a scenic 46 acre campus within the bucolic Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts, in the town of Great Barrington.  Services provided to the young men at Eagleton School are focused around the educational, interpersonal, and social growth of each individual student.  This has enabled them to return to their home school district and communities with the skills necessary to display positive behaviors, handle the stressors of life on life`s terms, and the vocational and academic skills needed to become gainfully employed, productive members of society.   Since our inception, the population of Eagleton students has dramatically evolved.  Like many older residential treatment facilities, our roots are in the behaviorally disordered, juvenile delinquent population.  Approximately 20 years ago, with the addition of the addition of a sophisticated clinical team, Eagleton began to serve a more psychiatric population which included organic mental illness and trauma survivors.  In the past decade, the population shifted again, through the explosion of growth with students on the autism spectrum.  At this time, approximately 75% of our current population maintains a diagnosis on the ASD co-morbid with other diagnosis.  Additionally, this year Eagleton broke ground on a state-of-the-art self-contained program servicing the severely autistic young man.  Applied Behavior Analysis and intensive staffing augment the structured milieu.
