Summary: Students at Deerfield work hard in the classroom. They pursue a rigorous college preparatory curriculum, one that challenges and, at the same time, develops creativity and intellectual maturity. Teachers are there to provide both structure and a caring atmosphere for learning.
Classes at the Academy are small—twelve students is the average size—and are defined by the participation of every student. The goal of the Academy is not just academic excellence in the topic at hand, but the development of the intellectual capacity and desire to educate oneself in all topics. Indeed, Deerfield is defined by an emphasis on well-roundedness in learning, in preparation for a life well lived.
There is exhilaration in the learning process—an excitement with which students here are familiar. Deerfield offers a wide array of courses so that each student has the opportunity to enroll in a challenging and interesting curriculum. The Academy also believes in the public sharing of work—in class, in publications, at school meetings—and this is a revered school tradition.
If you are a student who appreciates the value of hard work, who looks forward to challenge and who is interested in learning, please join us.
