Homeschool Friday Program Series

EV Homeschool Friday’s programs have both classroom-based and field trip-based programs, led by trained and knowledgeable EV docents. The classroom-based activities are intended to progress over the course of the year by ages and grade levels (Kinder through 6th grade). This provides more age and developmentally appropriate programming for each child. Specific topics and field trip locations vary from year to year.
