Virtual Events & Fairs

As we dive into a new Admission year, we welcome you to a “virtual” journey!

We promise to offer information here about Admission fairs and events that will allow you to learn more about Deerfield and other boarding schools.

Many of our events will be collaborative efforts with peer schools, while others will be independently a Deerfield experience.

Tune in.  Learn more.  We are excited to have you with us!

Frequently Asked Questions

An interview is an important part of the application process. All candidates are required to interview by February 1. 

Deerfield offers a need-based financial aid program that includes full-need grants, which cover 98% or more of tuition costs and other fees, and middle-income grants, which vary in size. If you have specific questions regarding your financial aid application please contact the Financial Aid office.

For the 2020-2021 admission cycle Deerfield will allow students to apply without submitting standardized test scores. Students who do not submit test scores will not be penalized in the selection process as we will continue to evaluate each application using a holistic approach that considers students’ achievements and successes in relation to their individual opportunities and challenges. 

For those students able to access a standardized test we do recommend submitting scores and have created the following testing guidelines:

Ninth and Tenth Grade Applicants:
We will accept an SSAT, PSAT, or ISEE test taken after September 1, 2019  
Eleventh, Twelfth, and PG Applicants:
We will accept any SAT, ACT, PSAT, or SSAT that you have taken after September 1, 2019.  
International Students in a Non-English Speaking School: 
For international students who have not been in an English speaking school for at least three years, we require a TOEFL or IELTS exam.    

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 2021 enrollment is January 15, 2021.

We 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.

Candidates who do not receive a March 10 notification are considered late candidates, and their chances for admission are limited by the number of spaces available after April 10. Late candidates should file their applications as soon as possible and call the Admission office to make an appointment to visit campus after April 15 for a tour and interview. The Admission Committee meets periodically throughout the spring to make decisions on this group of candidates.
