Classroom Programs

Shenandoah In Your School

Shenandoah National Park offers two classroom-based education programs. The programs are designed for 4th and 5th grade classes and align with Virginia Standards of Learning. A park ranger from Shenandoah National Park will come to your classroom and lead learning activities within a 45-60 minute class period. Through these programs, students will investigate the park's natural features and cultural history and learn how to become better stewards of our local environment. The programs include teacher-led pre-visit and post-visit activities that enhance the ranger presentation.

"Shenandoah in Your School" programs are free of charge and are available to schools within a 1 hour drive of Shenandoah National Park from November through April. The maximum class size for the ranger program and activities is 25 students but multiple 1-hour programs can be presented during a school day.
