A Field education isn't an endurance contest—it's a serious pursuit.
A serious education dares students to ask questions and to venture opinions. A serious education is a conversation and collaboration among teachers and students. A serious education connects ideas in logical ways. It is nuanced and patient, rather than a rush of memorized facts. A serious education is robust and flexible. It is the education you want for your kids in a world that values subtle and daring thought. It prepares students for (and sends students to) the Ivy League—and just about every other league—without the crush of AP classes.
A Field education lights the spark of real academic inspiration.That's
what we mean by "serious."
