Field Academy

Field Academy is an opportunity for students and teachers to travel and work on intensive projects during the three weeks between Winter and Spring Terms.



Classes and programs in a wide variety of subjects expose students to in-depth study, new interests, possible college/career paths, volunteer opportunities, and recreational pursuits.


Independent study projects may also be proposed. Projects often form the basis for continued study or interaction, expansion into a Senior Project, or the impetus for fundraising or other community service efforts.
