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 https://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, and private schools with a high percentage of scholarship recipients. Tickets are available by application only for visits between November and March, excluding holidays. Update 2/2/2019: We are no longer accepting applications for the 2018-2019 school year. Applications for the 2019-2020 school year will open in July 2019. Please click here for more information.
