Derby Council

The Derby Council was established in the fall of 2017 and provides current parents, alumni, parents of alumni, and friends an opportunity to engage with Derby Academy in a productive and meaningful way.

Members of this group, all of whom share a passion for this School and believe in its mission, values, and purpose, serve as informal advisors to the Head of School and Board of Trustees on a range of issues including the strategic plan, master plan, milestone celebrations, and marketing initiatives.

This year’s 2018-2019 Council is led by Co-Chairs Wendy Ellison '75 P'03,'05 and Ellen Mitchell '85 P'22,'24. For more information on the Derby Council, please contact Director of Development Paul Mountcastle.
