Enrichment & Access
Deerfield Academy provides a unique three week residential experience for students from three Pioneer Valley middles schools as well as dozens of KIPP charter schools from across the country. Students engage in four 70-minute academic classes a day with additional time devoted to independent study, advisor meetings, sports, the arts, field trips and fun. With an emphasis on science and ELA, the students have the opportunity to hone their research, writing and critical thinking skills while experiencing first hand the challenging academic environment at Deerfield. Participants benefit from the low teacher to student ratios, small class size and intimate nature of the program and get a first hand taste of life in a boarding school.
