The Creative Arts Department faculty is committed to promoting artistic excellence through self-discovery, creative expression, and collaboration. Our program builds confidence and discipline in students by encouraging creative risk-taking and the application of technical skills. The Creative Arts faculty also promotes empathy and an appreciation for the artistic contributions of others.
Derryfield students are challenged in a variety of compelling performing and visual arts courses. Through on and off campus performances and gallery exhibitions, students are able to present their talents to the Derryfield community as well as to local and national audiences.
Derryfield is a small school with big benefits for committed athletes, particularly those who aspire to play in college. Students who are looking for a program that can give them the competitive game experience and expert coaching to reach the next level can find it here. Our graduating varsity athletes go on to play in college (50+ colleges and universities in the past 10 years)—and some go even further!
