|Where the idea of America was born and still lives today||
For more than 70 years, Colonial Williamsburg has provided a premier field trip experience, educating students about the revolutionary ideas and ideals that helped forge America. Through engaging and interactive programming, homeschooled students have the opportunity to travel back in time and become immersed in the everyday life of a colonial city.
Each year, we designate several weeks for Homeschooler Experiences that include a variety of activities and hands-on opportunities. These programs are designed and priced exclusively for homeschooled students and their families.
In February, homeschooled students can participate in an apprenticeship with the Wig Maker or the Silversmith, and can have a lesson with Thomas Jefferson. In September, students and their families can experience RevQuest: The Black Chambers™, a new reality game that asks you to save the Revolution.
As the incubator for ideas and concepts that shaped our nation, Williamsburg has a rich history that can inspire our youth. The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, a not-for-profit educational foundation, operates the largest living history museum in the world. It actively supports a range of educational opportunities in keeping with Colonial Williamsburg’s mission: “That the future may learn from the past,” inviting homeschoolers and their families to be a part of America’s story.
