Eagleton School is a residential psycho-educational treatment center for boys and young men with difficult behavioral problems, emotional disturbances, sexual abuse issues, and/or learning disabilities.
Firm and warm personal controls in an open setting provide socialization, challenges and opportunities for working toward a positive self-image and reintegration into the home and community.
