Field studies are a vital part of Dayspring’s Principle Approach method of education. Every year, students journey out-of-classroom to delve deeper into their studies. The cost of field studies for Dayspring students is included in their tuition cost with the exception of the senior field study and any optional opportunity-based field studies.

Their precious little faces were absolutely cherubic and they were fascinated the whole time.”
