Fifty years of leading lives of passion and purpose.
Derryfield has not only gone "global" with student service projects extending all over the world, but our alumni can also be found around the globe. We currently have alumni located in China, England, France, Israel, and New Zealand to name a few. In addition, many of our alumni are temporarily spending time abroad for their studies or providing service to underdeveloped countries. In the US, Derryfield alumni can be found in every state in the nation.

It is our goal to help our alumni make meaningful connections with each other. To achieve this goal, we hold several regional gatherings every year. Last year we visited Chicago, Florida, Los Angeles, New York City, and Boston. During the 2018-19 school year we plan to head west to California, Colorado and Texas, as well as visiting Florida and gathering in New York. If you are interested in a regional gathering near you, please contact Alice Handwerk, Director of Alumni Development at
