We have all experienced “Wonder” in our lives, something beautiful and unexpected that leaves us feeling a sense of awe. At The Field School, our students experience wonder when their curiosity transforms into questions that propel them to seek answers, understand the possibilities and discover solutions. 

The world students live in today and will lead tomorrow is globally interconnected and changing rapidly with technological advances and world discoveries. Along with independent thinking, students need communication and collaboration skills at an early age to successfully and creatively navigate the challenges and opportunities they will face throughout their lives.

Intersession at Field is a two-week immersive program that takes place in February for all students in grades 6-12. During this time, students will have a variety of opportunities to grow their curiosity and creativity. While an opportunity to explore an individual passion through internships will remain one option for older students, the program will also foster collaborative work between students, faculty and the community to dive deep into subjects and learn meaningful and relevant skills to be applied both in and out of the classroom. 

Intersession allows students to practice critical life and career skills such as:
  • Identifying and reflecting on personal interests
  • Setting goals and learning strategies to achieve them
  • Collaborating effectively as part of a team
  • Developing empathy through meaningful experience beyond the school
  • Developing communication skills to connect with people, communities and organizations beyond the school
  • Using evidence to identify and define needs and propose solutions to real world problems.
