Frequently Asked Questions

An interview is an important part of Deerfield’s holistic application process. As space becomes limited in December and January, we highly recommend that you book your interview appointment early.

Deerfield’s financial aid program is a need-based program that supports 100% of demonstrated need. Currently, our program provides funding for 37% of our student body.  The program is comprehensive and may cover up to 100% of the total cost of tuition and fees.  We also support additional expenses such as travel and health insurance for a portion of our community.

Deerfield offers a test–optional application process. The Academy’s Admission Office will continue to evaluate each application using a holistic approach that considers each student’s achievements and successes in relation to their individual opportunities and challenges. For those students choosing to submit standardized testing, we have created the following testing guidelines:

 
Ninth and Tenth Grade Applicants:
We will accept an SSAT, PSAT, or ISEE test taken after September 1, 2021. 
 
Eleventh, Twelfth, and PG Applicants:
We will accept any SAT, ACT, PSAT, or SSAT that you have taken after September 1, 2021.  
 
International Students: 
For international students, if English has not been your primary language of instruction for at least three years or English is not your primary language spoken at home, you must submit the IELTS, TOEFL iBT, or Duolingo English Test, in addition to the standardized test appropriate to your application grade.

In GPS systems, you can use: 7 Old Main Street, 1 Albany Road, or 1 Academy Lane.

Deerfield accepts students for September enrollment only. Our priority application deadline for September enrollment is January 15We will make every effort to give full consideration to completed applications (including testing) received after January 15, however we cannot guarantee a March 10 notification.

Admission opportunities for late candidates, who do not receive a March 10 notification, is limited by the number of spaces available after April 10. The Admission Committee meets periodically throughout the spring to make decisions on this group of candidates.

You should make the recommendation request through Gateway to Prep Schools with your English or Math teacher from last year and inform our office of your situation.
