Fort McHenry NM&HS Education Options

Fort McHenry has begun to offer serveral options for educators and school groups. Classes can visit the park on their own, through ranger led programs, or they can use curriculum materials to teach lessons within the classroom. Educators looking to book a field trip for their classes should do so using the park's online form. General information on the park's offerings can be found in the options below.
