"We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time." - T.S. Elliot
The Field Academy Spring Appeal is seeking to raise $25,000 for scholarship and programming support in order to launch our 2012 "Exploring Citizenship" program for high school students this summer in Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee and Kentucky. Our Spring Appeal will make our innovative and exceptional form of education accessible to students from around the country. We are excited and proud to ask for your support again.
Your donation will demonstrate to our students that people around the United States care deeply about how they learn and who they become. Last summer, thanks to so many generous donors, 90% of our students received some form of financial aid. The Field Academy has made a commitment to making innovative and rigorous education accessible to all students regardless of financial need, and your support is critical to making this possible.
To learn more about the Field Academy's vision for education, check out Claire Hirschman's talk on "Making Learning and Life Indistinguishable", which recently was voted People's Choice during the TEDxDirigo auditions.
