Alcatraz Island is a perfect outdoor classroom to engage students in historic inquiry. We have two programs to assist with education visits to Alcatraz:
Alcatraz Uncovered: This inquiry based program is designed for San Francisco schools that have a high percentage of students receiving free and reduced lunches. The program consists of pre-site activities, classroom presentations by National Park representatives, the field program, and post-site activities. For more information about this program see http://www.nps.gov/goga/forteachers/index.htm.
Alcatraz School Access: Tickets are also available to public schools that have a high percentage of students receiving free and reduced lunches. Tickets are available for visits between November and March excluding holidays. Schools must submit applications by the first Friday after Labor Day.
