Our first year was met with the unexpected arrival of COVID-19 and we have been beyond impressed with how proactively the school has met the challenges from last spring through the re-opening this fall. When (our daughter) got to go back this fall, she has pretty much leaped out of the car each morning to get back to the classroom!

The Search for the Best School for Your Family is an Exciting Process

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 formexplore our campus virtually, or call us to ask any questions and begin the application process.

We look forward to meeting you!
