MR-lectureEarthship Academy students spend half their time in the classroom and half on the work site.  Classes are held in the Academy Classroom at the EVE (Earthship Village Ecologies) Compound.  Classes are taught by experienced Earthship staff including top builders, plumbers, electricians, plant specialists and Earthship founder Michael Reynolds.

The Earthship Academy is an intense, immersive experience.  School is in session six days a week for the month duration of each session.  There is a group homework assignment during the session and a final exam at the end.

Classes are typically one and a half to two hours long.
