Thank you for your interest in participating in the 2020-21 Architects in Schools season. You must read the program information and complete the following application to participate. Please read each question carefully and respond thoughtfully. 

We are planning an Architects in Schools structure for the coming school year that can best serve students, assist teachers and engage design & building professionals and architecture students in a safe and supportive way. 

We know this has been an unpredictable time and that teachers are planning to continue with distance learning this fall. We are prepared to support each class' individual needs - whether a school ends up following a hybrid in-classroom/distance learning model or an all distance learning model. 

We also know that design & building professionals and architecture students are interested in supporting teachers and youth during this time, but want to do so in a way that works best for schools. We had several design & building professionals continue to work with classes during distance learning last spring, and they found that the students were especially appreciative and excited about their time and it helped them engage in school in a way that was not otherwise available to them during their virtual instruction. 

We have listed some choices below that we hope will serve your situation best. If you have an idea about how to participate in the Architects in Schools program this school year that is not listed, please feel free to contact us!
