I’m excited to announce the return of the Rising Scholars Program in August, 2021!
RSP is a pre-orientation program that runs from Thursday morning, August 26, to Monday morning, August 30. Proctor orientation will begin midday on Wednesday, August 25. RSP introduces students to academic, social, and cocurricular life at Deerfield and provides a select group of ninth- and new tenth-graders an early opportunity to experience living and learning at Deerfield. Participants will live in a dormitory, attend academic classes, participate in social activities designed to help them connect to faculty and student proctors, and learn about available resources as they transition into the many facets of Deerfield life. You can click here to see the brochure that was sent to families of ninth- and new tenth-graders.
Past participants often cite their relationships with proctors as one of the most beneficial outcomes of the program. We are looking for about eight proctors, rising tenth-graders and juniors, to serve in this important role. The application is due by 11:59 pm, Sunday, May 16.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
I look forward to reading your application!
