Derby Academy is a coeducational, Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 8 school that nurtures the development of the child by providing opportunities for the maximum intellectual, emotional and physical growth of each student. Our dedicated faculty inspire students to discover the joy of intellectual curiosity, mastery of learning skills and service to the community. Students are also guided toward an awakening sense of personal responsibility in order to prepare them to make ethical and mindful contributions in an increasingly interdependent world.
A Derby education is built upon the connection between teachers and students. When a child feels known, supported and respected, he/she can meet their academic potential. Moreover, a Derby education provides a foundation of fundamental skills upon which teachers create a classroom environment where curiosity, intellectual challenge, critical thinking, compassion and problem solving occur on a daily basis. Graduates of Derby Academy are globally minded lifelong learners who understand the ways their education has prepared them to be positive members of society.
