About the Appeal

The Field Academy is a traveling academic program for high school students that explores different regions of the United States and studies critical issues within each region. It is an academically rigorous, educationally innovative high school experience in which students use the United States as their classroom and its diverse people and places as their textbook. The Field Academy strives to reach more students by training teachers in field-based curricula design through our Educator Retreat programs.

 

This past summer, eleven Field Academy students and five staff members hit the road in New England in a five-week writing intensive program called Away but Home.  Together they learned about how different communities and individuals throughout the northeast define ‘home’ and how they build, sustain, defend, and transform their homes.  From the ecological community of the Green Mountain National Forest, to the faith community of the First Baptist Church in Jamaica Plain, Boston, to the homeless community in Portland, Maine, these students learned the myriad ways we can define home and, ultimately, what home means to each of them.

 

You can view snippets of their final graduation essays in the video above.  These graduation essays were presented at the conclusion of the summer at Knoll Farm in Waitsfield, Vermont – our Field Academy home base for this past summer!


Your donation to our end of year appeal will help us build on the success we had this past year in 2016.  Next year we will be leading a climate justice program in Central Appalachia for students and anticipate building on this year’s successful educator programs.  As the Field Academy turns a corner into its full fifth year of operations, we are looking forward to welcoming more alumni into teaching and leading positions with the organization.
