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 multiple 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 interpretive staff dressed in period-appropriate clothes and include tours of historic sites and buildings, as well as hands-on activities that connect students in meaningful ways with history.
All HHV 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.
