The Museum welcomes homeschoolers to consider scheduling any of our educational programs or mini-programs that complement your homeschool curriculum. We can adapt most programs to serve smaller groups with an age-range of students. We also have on-site play areas at the Museum to occupy youngsters not participating in a program while their siblings are. Read an article about our Homeschool Programs from ATHM’s newsletter, Textile Times.
The cost for a homeschoool group to participate in a program is a flat fee of $90 for the first 10 students. Each additional student pays $6 and one adult per student is admitted free of charge. Additional adults cost $6.
“This is our first time here, and we are very impressed! Kathy is an awesome teacher and was able to communicate to the students in a concise, interesting way that they could understand and enjoy. We are always looking for programs that add value to the homeschool experience – not just for the sake of going out. The kids are learning a lot and enjoying it. We will definitely be coming back.”
- Denise Cedras, Milford, NH, mother of Matthias, 14, and Marcus, 11
“The teaching team is so creative in doing hands-on inventions and activities. The kids get a great lesson in history, but have so much fun doing it. They couldn’t wait to come here and I can’t wait to come back.”
- Stacie Cannon, Boylston, MA, mother of Claire, 12, Grace, 10, and Bella, 7
Homeschool students can also participate in a pre-scheduled Homeschool Day. Each program costs $8 per student and includes one adult for free. Each additional adult costs $6. Check back soon for 2014 Homeschool Days listings.
