Education is one of the primary goals of Arlington House and the National Park Service. Currently, the site offers several education programs. The Arlington House Junior Ranger Program is designed for individual visitors, ages 5-12.

Arlington House also has three Parks as Classrooms programs, which bring elementary, middle and high school students from the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area to the park. Program participants make site visits and complete pre-visit and post-visit activities in which they study related themes and topics in American history. Teachers should contact the park for more information.
