Featured School
The purpose of Deerfield Academy is to educate young people - intellectually, aesthetically, socially, physically and morally - so that they become responsible, contributing citizens and fulfilled human beings.
A Deerfield education is characterized by a rigorous curriculum, lively exchange of ideas and supportive teaching.
Its objective is to instruct students in the basic skills and subject matter of the humanities and sciences, to cultivate in them the habits and techniques of learning and to enable them to be curious, creative and independent.
The school is committed to the arts and to the development of an aesthetic dimension in its students.
Deerfield Academy is a residential community in which students should learn to conduct themselves according to high standards of citizenship.
Recognizing that diversity enriches the school, the Academy seeks to foster an appreciation of difference. The value placed on mutual respect and concern for others and on each person's contribution to the welfare of the school benefits both the individual and the Academy.
