The Field Academy is an organization that partners with students, teachers, schools, and communities across the United States to create immersive, community-driven, place-based educational experiences for young people.
We believe that a classroom can be anywhere: the middle of a field, the top of a mountain, the living room of someone's home, or the intersection of two city streets.
During the summer, the Field Academy runs a multi-week travel program for students ages 15-18. Each year this trip takes place in a different area of the United States and students have the opportunity to study a critical issue in that region.
Programs may include the areas of:
- New England
- The Southwest
