Derryfield Virtual Inquiry Packet
If there’s one thing you should know about The Derryfield School, it’s this: here, your child will never have to apologize for being smart (or artistic, or athletic, or just generally involved). Our teachers treat their students as partners in their educational experience, modeling leadership and flexible thinking. As a result, students are deeply motivated and inspired. To balance rigorous academics, we offer an athletic program that’s competitive and inclusive. As for the arts, everyone participates and discovers new talents. Ultimately, we’re striving to provide a balanced education; one that develops mind, body, and spirit equally. We also recognize that academic achievement without compassion and concern for others is meaningless. There’s a focus here on community, and students develop as citizens, not simply as scholars.
That kind of well-rounded approach yields great results. Derryfield has a 100% placement rate for four-year colleges. In fact, 91% percent of the Derryfield graduates are admitted to one of their top three college choices and they receive more than $2.5 million in merit funding. The best outcome? Derryfield alumni thrive and lead in their communities and chosen professions; they’ve learned to use Derryfield and its network of professionals as a lifelong resource. Naturally, parents are an equal part of this equation. We’re a day school for a reason; we value the presence of families! We would love to meet your family, and multiple options exist for connection.
We’ll see you soon!
Fostering Leadership in Every Student
Derryfield’s 70-acre campus has changed dramatically over the past few years with the addition of a 42,000 square foot Athletic & Wellness Center, the repurposing of our old gym into a Science & Innovation Center, and the relocation of our six-court tennis complex. We invite you to take a look around with our 360-degree tour, and hear from some of our student admission ambassadors about the school they love!
The Derryfield community includes families who can afford tuition at the top of the range and whose philanthropic generosity provides a vital component of annual operating expenses. There are also families who manage to pay tuition at the highest level only by making a substantial sacrifice, those who are able to afford only minimal tuition, and those in between. All families applying for equitable tuition complete an application through a third-party service. Based on the results of this application, your equitable tuition rate is confirmed at the same time as admission decisions are communicated.
