Our campus is currently closed, but our Admissions Office is here to help you and your family with any questions you may have about Derby, our Distance Learning Program, or the application process.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis beginning in September.
Please note that those applying to Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten and Grade One must be four, five and six years of age respectively by September 1 of the entering year.
The Derby community has been a true beacon of hope and positivity and we couldn't thank you enough. Entering this unprecedented journey, there were certainly more questions than answers, but I can honestly say the one true constant has been the genuine support given to our children...You can hear the genuine sentiment in the voices of the Derby community when they say, ‘we miss the kids so much.’

Your family may be wondering:
Where will my child be known and noticed? How does my child develop themselves as a logical, caring, young individual? How will my child develop the skills to become a lifelong learner?
We believe that to prepare our children to become successful and caring adults, we must focus on the mind through academics, innovation, and creativity, as well as the heart through service, kindness, and character-building. At Derby, we develop all of these areas in each of our students.
Consider what your family can expect from Derby Academy:
- Signature programs for children to discover their interests and develop their potential
- Rigorous academics
- A welcoming and supportive community
- An inspiring and dedicated group of faculty and staff
- The foundation for children to develop into caring, confident individuals who love to learn
Our Admission team looks forward to exploring and answering these questions with you. Please complete our online inquiry form, explore our campus virtually, or call us to ask any questions and begin the application process.
We look forward to meeting you!
