Andrew Jackson’s education paled in comparison to his predecessors in the White House, but Jackson understood the value of education. Jackson sought out the best schools for his adopted son and many wards and always pushed them in their studies. Today, The Hermitage continues Jackson’s belief in the value of education with a wealth of excellent and challenging educational opportunities for school groups, children on summer break, scouts, and adults too.
