Always Have Something Nice to Say About Us
The Field of Dreams Academy has truly been a blessing to our family! I learned about the organization from my son’s science teacher who recommended their GENIUS Science and Math Summer Camp. I immediately applied for a scholarship for my son to attend the camp. My 10-year old son loved the camp. He spoke so highly of it that his older brother wanted to attend.
Both of my sons simply fell in love with the camp. They were learning Physics, Geometry, various fields of engineering, including learning how to fly airplanes and understanding the dynamics of roller coasters. When my sons learned out FODA’s baseball program and how it prepared and placed players on some of the country’s elite academies, sending them to showcases such as the USA NITS and Breakaway Series, they had to join. My sons were even more committed to giving their best and striving for excellence. My family is actively involved with their athletic and academic enrichment programs.
They have participated in their soap box derby racing event, attended a baseball camp hosted by former MLB players, and participated in a global youth leadership summer program. One of my sons has even been accepted to the prestigious Brandon Hall School. The Field of Dreams Academy has given my sons so many opportunities and helped mentor them to become great young men. Our family is blessed!
