The School

  • It is a four-year college-preparatory school with approximately 600 students and about 100 faculty, all of whom live on or near campus.
  • While the enrollment at Deerfield varies slightly each year, the target enrollment of the school is 630 students. Approximately 76 day students attend Deerfield, and our population is 50/50 male/female. US: 39 states; international: 107 students from 32 countries.
  • Deerfield keeps its graduation requirements modest to preserve maximum student  exibility to shape program according to their interests, talents, and aspirations. In practice, most students go beyond graduation requirements in most subjects. For example, most students take four years of language, four years of math, three years of science, and/or three years of history. While the School encourages students to pursue disciplines beyond the School's requirements, the School also supports students who, for good reasons, wish to pursue alternative program.
