Mission and Core Values


Students discover their authentic selves and distinctive paths to become empathetic, creative thinkers who act boldly to shape our shared future.

The Field School is guided by its motto, Aude Sapere or "Dare to Be Wise."

Core Values

Creative + Connected
A Field student develops their passions and interests through exploration and discovery. Meaningful, relevant, and interwoven coursework provides Field students opportunities to grapple with their individuality, interdependence, and the common good as both members of our school community and global citizens. 

Inquisitive + Inclusive
A Field student seeks to discover more about themselves and the world through inquiry and an intentionally crafted and relevant curriculum. By wrestling with complex, real-world issues, graduates are problem-solvers and innovators. They are proud advocates for themselves and others. As a result of striving towards a deeper understanding of each individual, we build a community that is open and welcoming, celebrating differences and our shared values.  

Reflective + Resilient
A Field student is asked not just to produce but to thoughtfully consider and reconsider the evidence of their learning. Exemplifying the school motto, Aude Sapere (Dare to be Wise), students embrace their mistakes as growth opportunities and hone the iterative design process—developing into lifelong learners.
