Ninth-Grade Village

Since 2015, all 100 incoming ninth graders have been housed together in the Academy’s Ninth-Grade Village. The Village is comprised of two dormitories, connected by a large common room. Housing all ninth graders together continues to provide opportunities to build and sustain a residential program that is customized for the┬áneeds of new students: Structured study experiences, dorm-based programs around service and citizenship, and good old fashioned bonding moments are all on the menu. At its core, the Ninth-Grade Village provides students with a strong start to their Deerfield careers and is the foundation for lessons that support them throughout their time at Deerfield and beyond.
