Derby Academy invites your school to attend the 21st annual South Shore Secondary School Fair to be held on our campus Monday, September 25, 2017, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Approximately 400 students (in grades 6-12) and guests from 27 towns in southeastern Massachusetts attended last year’s fair.

We are sending out over one hundred eighty invitations to admission officers throughout the country to participate in our secondary school fair. We plan to advertise this event by reaching out to the South Shore community both digitally and in print. This year’s contribution of $300 from each school will allow us to advertise the event and to cover other expenses such as rentals, dinner for admission officers and refreshments.
We can accommodate up to one hundred schools, so please reserve your space now — first come, first served — to ensure having a table at the fair. To reserve a space, follow this link:, or click the "Schools Register Here" button on the right, and follow the instructions. Once registration and payment have been made, you will receive a confirmation email from AISAP. Please register ASAP.

    This year, Derby Academy is excited to announce our partnership with The Association of Independent School Admission Professionals (AISAP). AISAP’s Executive Director, Janice Crampton, shared that the launching of this collaboration for AISAP will be led by Ray Diffley, (Director of Admission, Choate Rosemary Hall and beginning July 1, 2016, Director of AISAP’s Center for Admission and Enrollment Management Leadership). At this newly enhanced event, AISAP will provide professional development programming for Admission Professionals prior to the Secondary School Fair (approximately 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM). During the fair (from 6:30 – 8:30 PM) there will be information sessions for parents and students, presented by leaders in the industry, on a wide variety of Admission topics that will assist families in the process of finding, applying to, enrolling in, and affording our educational experiences. The core of our successful Derby Academy South Shore Secondary School Fair will remain, while the significant enhancements brought to us by AISAP’s understanding of the profession and the process will increase the value of the fair for both the Admission officers and the attending families. More information on the program enhancements will be shared over the summer months. If you have any questions about the fair or the new programs, please contact the Derby Academy Admission Office by phone at 781-749-0746 ext. 146, or e-mail or Janice Crampton, Executive Director, AISAP at 203-421-7051 or e-mail
    We look forward to hearing from you by August 1. Please remember that we are limited to the first one hundred schools that reserve tables. Best wishes for festive end-of-year celebrations and a restful summer.
