Annual Support Opens Doors

The doors to learning are always open at Deerfield Academy.

Enter our doors and you’ll see that a student’s active imagination, innate curiosity and unique learning styles are celebrated and embraced. At the same time, essential life skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, decision-making, citizenship, and social responsibility are instilled in the lessons that take place both in and out of the classroom every day. Learning happens in countless ways and opportunities abound on Deerfield’s amazing campus. Students are privileged to learn in an educational environment with small class sizes, innovative academic programs, creative arts, competitive athletics, a spectacular campus–and most important, an outstanding faculty.

Just as strong community involvement and support opened Deerfield’s doors back in 1797, today’s extended school community remains equally committed to opening doors for today’s learners. Faculty inspire, alumni connect, and parents partner to protect all that we’ve collectively built.

At independent schools nationwide, a tradition of giving through the Annual Fund has evolved to sustain these collective efforts and protect similar educational models. Through the generosity of families at DA, each year we are able to provide a higher-level classroom experience to each and every one of our students. We appeal to you at this time to consider the doors your gifts will open for today’s Deerfield students.

Annual Fund dollars do so many things–they support our incredible teachers, sustain a wide range of programs from dance to athletics to music programs, and fund activities that define the DA experience. Specifically, they support the use of technology to accelerate mastery of foreign languages, team teaching in courses like Big History and AP Cambridge / Global H2O, and enhanced academic advising. In short, gifts to the Annual Fund benefit the student experience directly.

As tuition only covers a portion of our operating expenses, the school relies on donors such as our current and past parents, grandparents and alumni, to ensure we can fully support our wonderful teachers and Deerfield’s superlative learning environment. Whatever the amount of your gift, the Academy is extremely grateful for your support.

We thank you, in advance, for taking the time to be a part of this important annual endeavor. Please join the DA extended community by supporting the Annual Fund today.
