The field study programs at SCVi give our learners the opportunity to become personally involved in their learning through practical field applications and hand-on experiences. Field studies are directly connected to the projects learners are working on and give them an opportunity to work and learn beyond the learning space. Field studies can result in greater achievement in all subjects. Real-life application of the lessons and Presentations of Learning help learners understand the relevance of what they are learning.

  • Practical experiences: real-world knowledge and application
