Alcatraz Community Access

The National Park Service has created several opportunities for free or reduced price tickets to both schools and community groups.

Community Access Ticket Program: Approximately 5,000 tickets annually are provided to community organizations through the Community Access Ticket Service. Ticket requests must be made directly to CATS if you meet the selection criteria. http://www.communitytickets.org/

Alcatraz Uncovered: This inquiry-based education 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 programs, and post-site activities. For more information about this program see https://www.nps.gov/goga/forteachers/index.htm.

Alcatraz School Access Ticket Program: Tickets for self-guided field trips 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 May, excluding holidays. Applications for the 2019 - 2020 school year are now open.
