Sampling Deerfield 2020

October 18, 2019

Exp16 students stopping for an ice cream on Deerfield Day.Imagine: it's a hot, sticky day in late July. You've just finished a hike and you stop by a local ice cream stand on your way home. Stepping up to the window, you are amazed: they carry every flavor you can imagine--and many you can't: Noni, Anise, Snozzberry Crunch (what's a snozzberry?). Which do you choose? You wish you knew what they were like before you decide.  But maybe you should just settle into your usual - Vanilla with sprinkles.  What you really need in these situations is a sample--a taste or two to help you make up your mind. Without that, you would just stick with what you know...

Four girls enjoy their new friends on the final day of the program.

The Experimentory is a place to try new things--areas of study, solutions to problems, ways of looking at the world. It is also a way to try a new setting--boarding school and Deerfield Academy. A summer at the Experimentory is full of little sample spoons: a taste of a new course subject, a dab of living away from home, a lick of collaborative projects, a mouthful of Deerfield traditions. As a result, we hope our students will have a better sense as to what sort of school, classes, and learning suits them. We want them to order with bold confidence when it's their turn at the window!
