Vacation Travel

Charter Bus Service

Deerfield Academy arranges charter buses for student travel on Thanksgiving Vacation, Winter Vacation, Long Winter Weekend, and Spring Vacation.  To guarantee a seat, students are required to sign up online (students receive advance notice of the sign-up dates and the bus information). With the exception of the end-of-vacation transportation from Bradley Airport, students may use their school account to purchase tickets.  Please note that charter buses are NOT available at the beginning of school in September, at the end of school in May/June, or on Fall Parents Weekend or Spring Parents Weekend.

View the complete VACATION schedule here.  Buses leave at 1:30 at the beginning of vacations, and students are required back to campus by 7:30 pm from every vacation.

Round Trip charter bus transportation is available to and from: Bradley Airport (with a shuttle van service at end of vacation); Darien, CT; and New York City and Boston.
