*COVID-19 Update from College Advising* Amidst the evolving uncertainty of the coronavirus and its impact on college admissions, the Deerfield College Advising Office remains poised to support students in the college search and application process. Given the closing of college campuses to the cancellation of standardized tests and changing financial resources of some families, we recognize the need for resources and open lines of communication during this time of change. Our team continues to attend webinars and to connect professionally to grapple with these challenges in conversation with colleagues at peer institutions and college admissions offices alike. We have added a collection of COVID-19-related links that you will see on this site. For general information about the academy’s response to COVID-19, please see FAQs for Current Students and Families.
Our mission is to advise and support our students as they consider their futures beyond Deerfield. In our student-centered College Advising process we urge students to be self-aware as they explore their full range of options. We assist them in preparing authentic applications that highlight their talents and accomplishments. All of our work is guided by Deerfield’s core values, honesty, and respect for others.
