WHAT WE ARe DOING
We are opening a National Road trip Semester School. For one academic semester High Schoolers will train and bus across the United States examining national issues.
We recognize that we are living in a time of deep political and relational polarization. We want to solve this problem by bringing high schoolers in front of the issues, to question and get inspired, and step into action to work towards pathways for change nationally and locally.
Our goal is to re-open to core programming of Field Academy in Summer 2023! Getting back on the road for 5 weeks of programs.
We are excited to offer different length programs and for multiple ages. We want to make sure our programs are accessible to ALL students, which may mean a weekend to a few weeks.
We are committed to staying relevant and examining the core issues our nation is facing. That means our trip types and our locations will continue to be current.
More to come!
We believe that every student needs to get on the road and see and experience the world for themselves. We know that this can be done well in partnership with other organizations.
Spring Break Education trips, Summer Courses, Weekend Retreats, we want students to be able to deep dive the place they live with the people and community they already know.
We are excited to get these back off the ground in the next year!
The Field Academy taught me how to find an education, not just get one."
