Step Beyond The Classroom

For over 30 years, programs that are standards‑based, interdisciplinary, and age‑appropriate. Developed in partnership with teachers; regularly field-tested, evaluated, and updated.

Bring your class to the oldest preserved plantation house in America that is open to the public. Founded in 1738, when George Washington was just a boy, the house has stood through the rise and fall of plantation society, survived devastating natural disasters and wars, and remained intact in the face of modernization.

  • Curriculum-based programs integrate math, science, geography, art, social studies, physical education, and language arts, while helping to develop analytical skills that enable students to synthesize and evaluate information.
  • Creative problem solving through interactive learning stations and inquiry tours engages students in new ways.
  • Participation and making connections to the students’ own experiences are encouraged and guided by our professional education staff.


    “Thanks to the staff at Drayton Hall for a wonderful visit this past Thursday. Our students thoroughly enjoyed their visit and truly benefited from the knowledgeable guides and the exposure to the house and property during the Revolutionary War era. I can’t imagine how the trip could have gone any better.”
