The Field School


The Field School is a diverse, classical Pre-K - 8th grade school that feeds the hearts and minds of children through rigorous study rooted in a Christ-centered environment. Founded in 2017, we are animated by the dream of providing an exceptional education to children from all backgrounds. Our unique learning community is racially and socioeconomically diverse, and we reserve more than half of our seats for students from low-income backgrounds each year.

Working at The Field School

The Field School values rigorous academics, holistic growth, joyful discovery, and strong relationships, all for God’s glory. As our students engage together in timeless truths and trusting relationships, school staff embody a culture that is friendly, diverse, thoughtful, and energizing.

What drew me to The Field School is a shared desire to nurture the whole child—hearts and minds—intellectually, socially, spiritually, and emotionally, all while being rooted in Christ. We help students develop a deep passion for lifelong learning.
