Founded in 2007, the school was first housed in the Claudius Crozet Park Community Building for its first two years. In 2009 the School moved to the old Crozet high school, which was built in 1924.

For many years, the school sought a permanent home. An application request to move to Polo Grounds Road was denied by the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors on October 9, 2013. [1]

A proposal for a new site on Barracks Road went before the Albemarle Planning Commission in December 2016. [2]

The school switched to online learning just a week after the pandemic began. [3]

The Field School purchased the Blue Ridge Swim Club in the early 21st century. [4]
