FIELDS OF STUDY
Springhouse offers courses and experiences through six fields of study. These fields of study were developed in order to provide a well-rounded curriculum that encourages interdisciplinary exploration and learning. Facilitators determine which competencies apply to a course, and learners use the experiences organized by the facilitators to work on these competencies. Learners demonstrate their growth in a competency by showcasing evidence of their work in a Defense of Learning.
Learners learn through the fields of study by taking facilitated courses, working on independent projects, interning with local businesses, dancing and singing together, engaging in service-learning activities, and participating in expeditionary learning trips. Each learner’s experience at Springhouse will be individualized based on their strengths and the skills they need to hone, but all learners must work toward exemplary demonstration of all foundational competencies prior to graduation.
