Zoe Cousineau '20 - U.S. Coast Guard Academy
Throughout my time at Derryfield, I was challenged as a student, person, and leader. I was given opportunities to step outside my comfort zone while still feeling safe if I failed, which was one of my favorite aspects of the Derryfield community. Everyone has cheered me on during my best times and picked me up during my worst. My teachers were invested in my growth and wanted to see me succeed in every aspect of my life. During my seven years at Derryfield, I was given the opportunity to explore all of my passions and create a well-rounded resume that spanned all of my interests.
I decided to attend The US Coast Guard Academy because I wanted to continue to challenge myself in all aspects of my life. My family jokes that I am attending ‘Military Derryfield’ because like Derryfield, USCGA aims to produce intelligent leaders of character that serve their community in meaningful ways.
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.
