Welcome Deerfield Parents!

We want to extend a warm welcome to all families, new and returning!

In light of a challenging year, many in this community feel a sense of comfort in the traditions and rhythms of Deerfield life. We are eager to return to, celebrate, and discover those moments that define the Deerfield Experience as we begin a new academic year together.

On this site, you will find ways to be involved as a volunteer through the active Deerfield Parents Network  (DPN), upcoming parent events both on and off campus (usually a robust offering, however with the pandemic this year we are unable to host many event, but stay tuned for some exciting virtual programming!), log-in to DA Info where you can your child’s class schedule, grades, and student comments, and ways to support Deerfield though a donation.

Please reach out with any questions you have.

The Deerfield Parents Network

The Deerfield Parents Network (DPN) was created almost a decade ago, in 2011, to enhance the partnerships among Deerfield parents and between parents and the Academy. As you know, schools no longer serve in loco parentis, “in the place of parents,” but rather a latere parentes, “alongside of parents,” and the goal of the Parents Network is to improve the Deerfield Experience for all students and families. All Deerfield parents and guardians are “automatically” members of the DPN.​

Vidigami for Parents

Vidigami is a secure cloud-based photo management platform designed to give you a window into everything happening at Deerfield.
