It Starts With Your Investment

The Derryfield School offers the advantages and opportunities traditionally found at top college-preparatory boarding schools, while also providing the benefits of living at home. It's the best of both worlds and requires a significant investment. The 2017-2018 tuition at The Derryfield School is $32,450, with additional costs for textbooks, technology, field trips, bus transportation, and activities, etc. ranging from $700-$1600. Financial assistance is available to selected qualifying applicants, and students may also apply or be eligible for merit scholarship.

Others Are Investing in Your Child, Too

The cost of educating one student is actually greater than the tuition. To make up the difference, Derryfield seeks funding from foundations that support excellence in education; holds auxiliary fund-raising events; uses income from the endowment; and relies on gifts to the Annual Fund. Support for the Annual Fund starts with the faculty, staff, trustees, and Alumni Council. Their participation rate consistently holds at 100% each year--a reflection of their commitment to Derryfield's mission and students. Parents, grandparents, alumni, and alumni parents also contribute, and every gift helps to keep tuition as low as possible and make the school affordable to a wider range of students.
