We're often asked, "What kind of student succeeds at The Field School?" The Field School supports Self-Discovery, Skills of Mind + Generosity of Heart, values at the heart of The Field School Mission. Ours is an inclusive and dynamic community where the individual student is wholly supported, nurtured, and encouraged to be themselves. Our innovative, interactive, and robust curriculum and programs are tailored to support individual, varied learning styles. Field students join us from rich and diverse backgrounds from around the world.
