Homeschool Programs

Bring your homeschool group to meet the animals and learn about Puget Sound!

Homeschool families are invited to visit the Seattle Aquarium on Homeschool Days for exclusive programming reserved for your group. During this event, learning stations will teach your students about plankton, marine mammals and careers in marine science.  The activities are perfect for families with multi-aged children.

Thanks for your interest in Seattle Aquarium’s educational programming! There will not be any additional Homeschool Days for the rest of the 202324 school year. Homeschool groups still qualify for educational trips to the Aquarium at the discounted rate of $10 per person. Visit our self-guided field trip page to schedule your group’s visit.
