A Diverse, Classical, Christ-Centered School on the West Side of Chicago

The Field School aims to feed the hearts and minds of children through rigorous study rooted in a Christ-centered environment. We exist to create opportunities for children of all backgrounds to be known and loved as they learn. We believe that all children are made in the image of God, capable of becoming agents of renewal for the sake of our city and beyond. 

As we bring together children from diverse racial and socioeconomic backgrounds, our classical education curriculum invites students to embrace God’s goodness and timeless truths as they grow together from Pre-K through 8th grade.

It is important for our children to be raised in diverse environments where they understand the beauty of God’s creation from an early age. We also want them to have sharp critical thinking skills that allow them to engage in the world in a way that brings glory to God. The Field School fosters both diversity and an environment where thought leaders can emerge.

Diverse

We are a racially and socioeconomically diverse school. We believe that the full expression of the kingdom of God depends on rich and diverse community. Over half of our seats are reserved for students from low-income families.

Classical

We are a classical school influenced by the thought of Charlotte Mason. We believe that education should kindle our hearts, sharpen our minds, and fill our mouths with praise of the God who created all things.

Christ-Centered

We exist to glorify God and help students and their families enjoy deeper union with Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit. Our curriculum, staff, and school culture are all ultimately centered on Christ and his Word.
