  1. Jermani Maker ’23 Honored by College Board

    The College Board has chosen Jermani Maker's portfolio from her AP Photography class to be included in the AP Art and Design digital exhibit as one of the top 50 portfolios from over 74,000 submitted. Jermani's thematic series was a powerful reflection on growing up as a "Katrina Baby" in New Orleans. Congratulations to Jermani!

  4. Pete Nelson ’81: 2017 Wick Huffard Visiting Architect

    Pete Nelson '81, star of Animal Planet's Treehouse Masters, spoke at School Meeting today as the 2017 Wick Huffard Visiting Architect. Pete and his team have traveled the world designing and building everything from simple one-room treehouses to amazing abodes with all the comforts of more traditional homes.

    Thanks to the generosity of the Huffard family, every year a Huffard Architect is named and comes to Deerfield to share their work with students, faculty, and staff. The program was established in 2005 in memory of Wick Huffard '03, who had hoped to pursue a career in architecture after college.
