The Experimentory Blog

Our year-round blog describes our program, values, and plans for next year.

The Exp Summer Daily

Our summer news consists of daily updates while we're in session -- giving a window into past years.

What is the Experimentory?

October 25, 2017

Theater Teacher Mr. Thrasher coaches two Exp16 students as they reherse a dialogue.

We’ll start with the quick-and-easy answer: The Experimentory at Deerfield Academy is a fun-filled, academically-challenging summer experience for middle school students. Together we learn how to be innovative and creative while trying on a boarding school lifestyle.

This video should fill things in a little more:

But two sentences and a three minute video can’t really capture a summer at the Experimentory. This is the first post in a series we're calling Four W’s and an H: Getting to know the Experimentory. The posts that follow will highlight our program goals (Why the Experimentory?), our students and staff (Who is the Experimentory?), our setting (Where and when are the Experimentory?) and finally how to apply. Stay tuned! And in the meantime, please explore our website!
