About our Programs
Our school and group programs are great for any group – not just schools! Scouts, homeschool groups, libraries, senior centers and more can all enjoy these exciting offerings. These programs give participants a memorable, fun and highly educational way to learn about animals and conservation.
Choose from a variety of topics that will keep your group engaged as they learn more about the natural world around them. For school groups, each program includes science lessons aligned to Virginia’s Standards of Learning and also fit curriculum requirements in North Carolina and for private schools. We offer two great options – virtual or in-person! Off-site programs are unavailable at this time, check back for updates.
The Virginia Zoo’s Education Department is currently booking school and group programs through August 2021. Program offerings and prices for the 2021-2022 school year are under review and subject to change. Program bookings for the 2021-2022 school year are anticipated to open in July 2021.
Title 1 schools in Virginia and North Carolina, as well as all Norfolk Public Schools, are eligible for a free Career Chat + Q&A session. Free chats are limited and scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. Please contact the Virginia Zoo for more information.
