Re-Opening Our Campus
Student Centered and Mission Focused
Derby Academy remains committed to providing a safe, supportive, and engaging mission-driven experience for all our students this fall.
Our re-opening plan allows us to further differentiate our program and offers us more flexibility than many other public and area schools.
Thank you for this comprehensive plan. Although we feel Derby teachers and staff did a fantastic job in the spring, it is excellent news that we will be able to have our son on campus for his last year at Derby. We are grateful to all the staff who have made this possible in a safer, responsible manner.

With the health and safety of our community at the center of our re-opening plans, our approach leverages our spacious campus, our high standards of health, and is reinforced by our teachers who remain committed to providing a supportive and safe learning environment for students.
Health and Safety Measures Across Campus
Our new health protocols prioritize the health and safety of our community and require a strong partnership between faculty, staff, and students to maintain a healthy environment. We will adhere to health and safety protocols in accordance with the (CDC) guidelines for physical distancing, face covering, hand-washing, and surface cleaning.
Programming & Increased Social-Emotional Support
Campus will look a little different, but we're committed to providing an engaging, mission-driven academic and social program that upholds Derby’s core values and motto: “Improve Both Mind and Heart.”
The social and emotional health of our students remains a top priority during the uncertain times ahead of us. We'll continue provide opportunities for students and teachers to have time and space to connect, to reflect, and to process their experiences.
Remote Learning Option
We're aware that some of our students will need to learn from home. We will provide a remote learning model for those students during the 2020-21 school year.
- The remote option will include a blend of synchronous and asynchronous learning opportunities that cover all core academic subjects with optional specials.
- We've invested in new technology that will enhance our remote learning options.
- Families have the option to rejoin live, in-person instruction through designated re-entry dates across the year.
