It's About Education

Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site is committed to preserving and interpreting the story of the 1957 desegregation crisis at historic Central High School as it relates to the larger story of Civil Rights history in America.

The National Park Service is proud to support teachers and students as they explore and discover our nation's heritage. We provide
lesson plans and curriculum, distance learning opportunities, and professional development training including our annual Civil Rights Educator Institute.

Are you interested in bringing your school group here on a
field trip? Field Trip Reimbursement grants may be available on a limited basis to assist Arkansas schools in coming to Little Rock Central High School NHS.

Are you interested in bringing a park ranger to speak at your school or organization? Our park rangers conduct offsite programs in schools, colleges, offices and libraries across the state of Arkansas.

Memory Project and the student-produced content in the field of civil and human rights. Check and see what special programs the National Historic Site is offering throughout the year.
