Homeschool students will have a chance to participate in a full day at Oak Hill School on Friday, May 10.
Oak Hill School was built in 1886 to serve the community of Knob Creek. The building served local residents until it was closed in the 1950s. The school building was moved the seven miles from Knob Creek to Jonesborough and placed in its current location behind the Visitors Center. Today, Oak Hill School invites students to come for a day-long field trip and enroll in school in 1893. Reading, writing, arithmetic, history, geography – even the pledge of allegiance – are all as they were prior to the turn of the last century.
School will last from 9:00am – 2:00pm on May 10. This program is limited to 26 students, grades 1st – 12th, so sign up now!
Registration is now open for the day at Oak Hill School at www.heritageall.org. The cost is $5 per student. Students must register in advance. We cannot accept registration the day of the event.
