Scope, Jurisdiction, and Reporting

Simply stated, these rules apply during the entire duration of enrollment at Deerfield: from the first moment students arrive on campus until they depart after graduation, online and offline. A student’s behavior should never jeopardize the welfare or reputation of the Academy or other Deerfield students.

At all times during enrollment—including school trips, during personal travel, and during vacation periods—students are expected to behave in a manner consistent with school rules and policies.

School disciplinary procedures may be applied if the Academy is presented with information that students have violated school expectations while away; such infractions may result in disciplinary action up to and including suspension or expulsion.

Students should note that faculty and staff are obligated to report rule violations and student misconduct—regardless of circumstance or method of discovery.

These rules are not a legal contract, nor do they grant any additional rights or guarantees.
