The Field of Dreams Academy has partnered with various higher learning institutions and educational enrichment programs to increase our student/athlete's knowledge base in the field of science and mathematics.

According to a Michigan State University Study research found that kids who take part in vigorous physical activities such as soccer and baseball did approximately 10 percent better in core classes, such as math, science, English and Social Studies.

Theories done for Women in Sports and Science: Do Female Athletes Have an Advantage by Sandra L. Hanson and Rebecca S. Krauss (April 1998) suggest that participation in sports may have a positive influence on achievement in science, especially for young women. It also found that young African American women who participate in sports succeed in science.
