Experience Derby's Winter Term!

Join our classes in session and see how our campus focuses on issues of sustainability, access and consumption of resources, and adopting healthier lifestyles during our special two-week term.

With Derby’s regular class schedule on hold, Middle and Upper School students are able to take their research into the field and meet with experts to creatively investigate, engage, and apply hands-on, solution-oriented designs to resolve challenges on both a global and local level. The approach brings together a mission-based experience for students and faculty to develop their global awareness and bring it back to the Derby campus.

Tour campus, meet with faculty, staff, and students, and see how Winter Term provides a mission-based experience for students to think globally and act locally to tackle some of the biggest social and environmental challenges facing our world today.
