Field Academy 2017

Field Academy courses are an opportunity for Upper School students and teachers to work intensively on group and individual projects during three weeks (two weeks for grades 7–8), usually in March, between Winter and Spring Terms. Classes and programs in a wide variety of subjects are offered to expose students to in-depth study, new interests, possible college/career paths, volunteer opportunities, and recreational pursuits. Many of these occur in conjunction with travel, both abroad and within the United States. Independent study projects may also be proposed. Field Academy projects often form the basis for continued study or interaction, expansion into a Senior Project, or the impetus for fundraising or other service efforts.
