For the past four summers, Fort Scott NHS has participated in the teacher ranger teacher progam. The program is a six-eight week program that gives school teachers an opportunity to work as an intern in a national park area. TRTs help strengthen the site's education programs and outreach and take their experiences with them back to the schools.

The site is sponsoring a teacher workshop in September 2013 that focuses on African American Soldiers and other unsung heroes of the Bleeding Kansas/Civil War era. Participants in the workshop will be instructed in project based learning as a method to engage students in the stories of the past.
