FIELD TRIPS AND DISTANCE LEARNING

All of our student education programs are designed around Virginia Standards of Learning, and are intended to enrich students’ knowledge of American wars and the Virginian men and women who served in them. We offer field trips consisting of tours and additional programs on-site at the Memorial, and Distance Learning programs for groups unable to travel to Richmond.

We offer year-round professional development opportunities for Virginia teachers. Our programs are always free, and qualify participants for recertification points.
