Quincy Asian Resources, Inc. (QARI) is proud to announce that Derby Academy is one of its Asian Community Partners. QARI’s Asian Community Partnership program connects businesses and service providers with opportunities to engage with and invest in the Asian population in Quincy and the South Shore area.
Founded in 1784, Derby Academy is an independent, co-educational, Pre-K through Grade 8 school located in Hingham, MA. Its motto, “Improve Both Mind and Heart,” reflects the School’s commitment to providing a well-rounded education that nurtures the development of the child by providing opportunities for the maximum intellectual, emotional, and physical growth of each student.
Derby has been a leader on the South Shore for three centuries because its students are leaders with inquisitive minds. Their faculty inspires girls and boys to love learning, take joy in service, and strive for excellence. Students are guided toward an awakening sense of personal responsibility in order to prepare them to make ethical and mindful contributions in an increasingly interdependent world.
The School has an immersive, two-week “Winter Term” program, in which students research and provide solutions to global issues such as sustainability, access and consumption of resources, and adopting healthier lifestyles. Students partake in community service and volunteer with nonprofits like Cradles to Crayons and Father Bill’s, while Lower School students frequently correspond with children from Malawi Children's Mission Academy in Malawi, Africa. Derby Academy is truly an intimate community that encompasses a strong sense of commitment to diversity and global issues.
学院设有为期两周的“冬季学期”模拟项目，让学生研究和提供全球性问题的解决方案，例如可持续发展、资源的获取及利用、健康的生活方式等。学生也会参与Cradles to Crayons 和 Father Bill’s等非营利组织的社区和志愿者服务，低年级学生则负责与非洲Malawi 地区的Malawi Children's Mission 学院的小孩子通信。Derby学院对于多样性和全球性问题有着很强的使命感，是个名副其实的非常温馨的社区。
In this new partnership, QARI and Derby Academy will provide opportunities for the Quincy community to attend and participate in various events on Derby’s sprawling 27 acre campus.
亚协和Derby学院将会在 Derby 27英亩的校区内举办各式活动，届时欢迎昆市社区各界人士积极参与。

About Derby Academy
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 inspires 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.
At Derby Academy, we recognize and value the characteristics that contribute to each individual’s full identity, to include race, gender, age, ethnicity, religion, culture, nationality, family structure, language, sexual identity, socioeconomic background, physical differences and learning styles. Our mission is to cultivate a school community infused with a multiplicity of voices and perspectives. By moving beyond individual experiences, we learn to think critically, adapt, communicate, collaborate, imagine, understand and grow. Our goal is to create a safe and welcoming environment where each person freely brings his or her whole self to school each day, confident that every individual will be respected. We believe that being a truly inclusive community requires constant attention, at times involving moments of uncertainty and misunderstanding. We dedicate ourselves to use conversation as a catalyst for the growth and change we seek.
