Future Homeschool Days:

Note: Hermitage members receive a discounted rate for Homeschool Days - $7/student, $8/adult.
What are parents saying about The Hermitage's Home School Days?
"You know it's been a good day when your youngest traveler, age 4, says of an education trip to a historical museum, "that was so much fun, can we go back there!"
"Both my daughter and I were THRILLED with all of the presentations we attended during the home school day. We have been to all of the other historical sites around Nashville and this was by far the best home school program we have attended. Thank you for the excellent program."
"FABULOUS!!!!!!! WOW!!!!! These classes were easy to understand, right length, great teachers, everyone had a wonderful time."
"Many home school programs tend to be artsy-crafty, fun with little real educational content. This was a welcome exception. Both my daughter and I learned a lot without getting lost in names and dates.
"This was so awesome!!! I was amazed that the day went by so quickly. My children enjoyed the whole day and were not bored or uninterested. They paid attention the whole time and remembered so much. I have only great things to say."
"Well organized and one of the best homeschool days we have attended. Staff was friendly and informative."
