Charter Bus Service
Deerfield Academy arranges charter buses for student travel during Thanksgiving Vacation, Winter Vacation, Long Winter Weekend, and Spring Vacation. To purchase tickets, students are required to sign up (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 June, or on Fall Parents Weekend or Spring Parents Weekend.
