High School Field School (HSFS) is a three-week long intensive archaeology program at the Crow Canyon campus in Cortez, Colorado that brings together high school students from across the country. This year's group of twenty-eight students come from a diversity of backgrounds, hailing from California, Colorado, Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin!

Students work with Crow Canyon's dedicated staff of educators and researchers to learn about and investigate thousands of years of history and cultures in the Four Corners Region. The program includes classroom lessons as well as hands-on, outdoor activities and excavation at an actual archaeological site.

This web site is broken down into six main categories based on the various programs and activities that make up the High School Field School experience:


  • Living at Crow Canyon examines the campus, evening activities, and fun during free time
  • Lab Work focuses on the different post-excavation activities that students participated in during lab time
  • Excavation details our work at the Goodman Point Pueblo archaeological site
  • Lifestyles programs are designed to give students a first-hand chance to explore what life was like for ancestral Pueblo people
  • Trips and Activities highlights the off-campus field trips
  • About Us contains pictures of all the students and staff of HSFS 2005
