    Overview

    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 back in person and on campus for the 2022 summer!

    • A unique opportunity for your children to explore interests and challenge themselves in a variety of ways. It has been such a positive experience for my child, navigating over 4 weeks from the initial excitement and anticipation, to being slightly out of her comfort zone,to being open to new experiences and now not wanting to leave!!! So grateful to everyone that made it possible for her to participate.
