"If people have knowledge of life, it is only out of life itself that they can take up their tasks." - Rudolf Steiner. For parents and students to be in control of their education it is important that they are ultimately in control and accountable. As such, Global Field Academy is not a school but rather a full or part time home school enrichment center, and two days per week students are able to have two field based experiences. We provide support for the busiest of families and encourage families to realize the benefits of the public, private and home-school sector.
Learning never stops, why should we? Global Field Academy is a year round experience, with rolling admission, based on capacity. We know there are no two students alike, and have created an environment that allows students of all ages to work and enter the program at various levels. We all then work together to constantly relate, reflect, and master our collective goals. As such, it is common that students may begin either ahead in some subject areas or behind in others. In addition, families create their own annual calendar, which includes vacation and or home/remote work as necessary to comply with learning goals and state home-school requirements.
Monday & Friday's students are dropped off at a designated field day site (exm. Frost Museum, Miami History Museum, etc.). Tuesday-Thursday's the workshop is open from 9am to 5:00 pm. with optional before or after care. The aforementioned operation hours are not mandatory but rather are established to support your schedule, whether full or part time. At Global Field Academy our certified educators, licensed child care professionals, coaches and educational enrichment service providers provide one on one guidance, enrichment activities and and help busy parents track academics and manage portfolios.
Global Field Academy is a non-profit and our goal is to make the experience affordable for all families. Therefore, participation fees are based on a sliding scale and parent participation/contributions. Full and partial scholarships are available. For families that do not qualify for scholarships (2018-2019) the maximum fees per family are estimated to be under $700 per month. Additional fees may apply.
Three days a week we meet at the main workshop at Mind Lab Center at Dezerland Park in North Miami, two days a week the community is our classroom. Students who began with us in the 2017-18 academic year have experienced over 200 field days. Field days are hosted by our community partners, which include museums, galleries and public incubator and performance spaces. Each host provides space for our “pop-up” workshops.
The dual lingual (English/Spanish) enrichment center operates more like a fitness club, than a school. Programs are offered throughout the day but not required, the educators and tutors are always available for personal training as educational coaches to help students master their individual learning plans. For the 2018-19 academic year the workshop did not exceed 25 students at any given time. Parents who go through a level 2 background screening are invited to co-work and/or co-educate in the space, but are not required to be there for any student over the age of 5. Group time, peer learning, thematic and special workshops take place daily when it is relevant to the learning objectives.
