The Deerfield family consists of every current and former student, parent, and grandparent. As in any family, being a member confers a number of benefits, but also calls for fulfillment of certain responsibilities that contribute to the continuing strength of the family.
Upon graduating from Deerfield, alumni enter a diverse network of former Deerfield students. Deerfield alumni have ventured into almost every area of employment, and many are at the top of their respective fields. The advantages of this vast network are numerous and significant, but benefits of alumni membership extend beyond the opportunities afforded by access to the expertise and support of other former Deerfield students.
Every member of the Deerfield family receives the following:
- Automatic subscription to Deerfield Magazine
- Online subscription to the Deerfield Scroll
- Access to the Deerfield Mobile App and directory
- Invitations to special Academy Events both on and off campus
- Eligibility for membership in a number of recognition societies
- The ability to read and submit class notes – available online and in Deerfield Magazine
Alumni are also eligible for alumni awards, such as the Ashley Award, Heritage Award, and Deerfield Medal.
There are no membership fees or dues for members of the Deerfield family, but Deerfield does ask for assistance in a few areas. First of all, in order for Deerfield to have the most up to date records possible, we encourage members to keep us apprised of their current contact info. Alumni are also urged to direct all concerns and suggestions regarding Deerfield’s operations through the Executive Committee, the governing body of the Alumni Association. The committee acts as the voice of the Alumni Association, and works closely with the school administration. In order to keep tuition affordable and the quality of a Deerfield education at its highest, the Academy depends upon the continuing support of alumni and their families. This support can take the form of annual or capital gifts, or time spent volunteering on behalf of Deerfield.
Being a member of the Deerfield Alumni Association means you will always be a part of the Deerfield family. Come back for reunions or just for a visit, write often, and continue to be worthy of your heritage.
