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.
