A Unique Learning Community
Derby Academy is a unique learning community that is steeped in traditional values. Our faculty and staff are committed to integrating effective and proven teaching methods with the most innovative approaches to learning. Our educational philosophy is as valid for the rigors of the 21st Century as it was at our founding in 1784: "Improve Both Mind and Heart." 

Education at Derby Academy
As students move through the 10 grades at Derby, they benefit from consistency and coordination between the Primary School (Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten), the Lower School (Grades 1, 2, and 3), the Middle School (Grades 4 and 5), and the Upper School (Grades 6, 7, and 8). Academic, artistic, athletic, and extracurricular programs nurture an abiding sense of personal values and ethical behavior, enabling students to mature into well-rounded individuals. Derby graduates are notable for their readiness to do well in secondary school and college and for the personal character strengths they take with them into adult life.
