- The Writing Program at DA: The Writing Program at Deerfield academy is a distinguishing feature of the Deerfield curriculum. Students work to improve their writing during all four years of their Deerfield experience. They begin with English 1, a freshman year class that focuses on the fundamentals of persuasive writing. The writing program ultimately leads to a presentation of a long reflective piece called the “senior meditation.”
- Independent Research: Students have the opportunity to pursue independent research in advanced science classes, as a summer project, or as a part of an independent study. Examples of student independent research topics include 3-D modeling of genes and gene analysis.
