School programs at Historic Hudson Valley bring to life the depth and breadth of American history through immersive programs designed for a range of grade levels and subject areas.
Our sites span the course of our nation’s history while engaging students with the past: We cover colonial America, the American Revolution, America’s emergence as a new nation, the rise of industrialization, and the development of American Romanticism.
All programs are led by professionally trained museum educators and include tours of historic sites and buildings, as well as hands-on activities that connect students in meaningful ways with history.
Our programs have been designed to align with the Common Core. Updates include a focus on analyzing primary documents, developing critical thinking skills, and grade-specific programs that align with national learning standards.
