My vision of the future is no longer of people taking exams and proceeding on that certification…but of individuals passing from one stage of independence to a higher, by means of their own activity, through their own effort of will, which constitutes the inner evolution of the individual.

   -- Maria Montessori

Williamsburg Field School - designed to meet the needs of secondary learners:

  • to develop adaptability

  • to become problem solvers

  • to connect deeply with nature
