Parent Faculty Association

Academic challenge, personal growth. What happens in the classroom is only the beginning.
When a student enrolls at Derryfield, the entire family joins the community. We have a thriving Parent Faculty Association that organizes events and offers programs to make everyone feel welcome at the School. Class parents and connecting families mentors are there to answer questions and serve as a resource for all parents. PFA volunteers are crucial to running several community events and programs throughout the year, culminating with the Spring Benefit.

If you are a current parent, we encourage you to log into derryfield.myschoolapp.com and check out the PFA page on the Resource Board.
