The Experimentory

JULY 9, 2024 - JULY 27, 2024

Admissions for Summer 2024 is complete. Feel free to join our mailing list to be notified when our 2025 application is available.

The Experimentory is a fantastic opportunity for students currently in sixth, seventh, and eighth grade to sample Deerfield Academy. The Experimentory is an innovative program that allows students to delve into project-based, creative learning and focuses on collaboration, communication, fostering creativity, building character, and developing how we look at the world.

The Experimentory also strives to provide our middle school students with a sample of the Deerfield Experience. The majority of our teachers and senior staff are Deerfield Academy faculty, and many of our classroom and dorm assistants are recent DA alums. The Experimentory is a great way to try boarding school life to decide if it is a good fit for you.

We absolutely can’t wait to welcome students in person and on campus for the 2024 summer!  Explore the tabs above to learn more about the Experimentory experience, program details, and application process. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to our office using the contact information at the bottom of this page.
