The Senate House State Historic Site provides homeschoolers with the opportunity to learn about colonial life and Kingston’s role in the early days of our nation’s history. We welcome homeschoolers to consider scheduling any of our field trip thematic programs that complement your homeschool curriculum. We can adapt most programs to serve smaller groups with an age-range of students.
