The Derryfield School utilizes Smart Tuition for the processing and collection of our families’ tuition and monthly student billing charges.

Smart Tuition’s staff is available 24/7, 365 days a year to answer questions about your Derryfield account. There is a $50 annual administration fee for all families.
Families new to Derryfield are required to create an account with Smart Tuition.

Read your online 2020-2021 Enrollment Contract. This Contract contains specific payment and tuition information for your family. Please note that your Contract, signed by both parents or legal guardians, and your 10% non-refundable deposit must be received by The Derryfield School Business Office by April 10, 2020 to reserve a space for your child.

The Derryfield School is offering six bus routes for the 2020-2021 school year. To sign up for transportation, please check the bus transportation option box in your online Contract. Deb Allen in the Business Office will forward the Transportation Agreement to you for completion. A deposit is due with this form, and the remaining balance will be due using the payment option you select. Please complete your online Transportation Agreement and pay the non-refundable deposit (by direct debit or check to The Derryfield School) by April 10, 2020.
Tuition Insurance from A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. is available to protect your obligation to pay tuition under the terms of the Enrollment Contract. Tuition insurance insures tuition (prepaid and due) in the event of a child's separation from the School according to the terms of the insurance policy. Please see the enclosed brochure.
We strongly encourage all families to carefully read the terms of both the Enrollment Contract and The Tuition Refund Plan brochure. Please note that the tuition commitment date is May 15, 2020. The Contract states that the family’s obligation to pay tuition for the full academic year is unconditional as of 30 days of signing your Enrollment Contract. No deduction or remission of tuition shall be made by the School, after this date, for any absence, dismissal, or withdrawal for disciplinary, health, academic, personal or other reasons whatsoever, including school closure in the event of a disaster, except for any portion covered by the Tuition Refund Plan, and only if said plan is purchased. The Tuition Refund Plan is the sole remedy to protect students, parents, and guardians from incurring the obligation to pay full year tuition, and the School recommends it for consideration even when not required as set forth in the Enrollment Agreement.
The only options for families who withdraw after 30 days of enrolling are to pay the School in full or use tuition insurance to cover this expense. Please note that this insurance cannot be purchased past the date of September 1, 2020. Per the terms of the insurance, please be aware that students must attend “fourteen consecutive calendar days beginning with the student’s first class day of attendance in the academic year” in order to submit a valid tuition claim. Reimbursement is prorated for days not attended and is subject to type of withdrawal.
Located in Manchester, NH, The Derryfield School is a private day school for grades 6-12. Students benefit from a challenging academic program, fine and performing arts, competitive athletics, and a wide selection of extracurricular activities.
