Students can spend the day learning and connecting with other home school students and families. Themed programs offer your family the opportunity to dive into a variety of topics. Each program includes a pre-visit and post-visit packet of lesson plans and aligns with Florida Standards.
Our home-school curriculum was developed especially to meet the standards for Grades K through 5, but all ages enjoy the programs. Bring your 4-year-old or your high schooler – they are sure to have a great time with our hands-on activities and projects!
Cost for each program: Students $10 (members $4); adults $4 (free for members). Advance registration is required. Members (annual pass holders): Please sign in on the registration page to enable discounts to apply.
All these programs are on Fridays.
