The Heritage Alliance is excited to offer two homeschool days at the historic Oak Hill School on May 16th and May 23rd. The award winning Oak Hill School Heritage Education program is the only experiential learning program of its type in this region, and homeschool students are encouraged to come and experience history with the Heritage Alliance in Tennessee’s Oldest Town.
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 experience 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 Monday, May 16th and May 23rd. This program is limited to 26 students, grades 1st – 12th, so sign up now!
May 16th is FULL. We still have space available on May 23rd.
Registration form for May 23rd is available here. The cost is $5.00 per student for the day at Oak Hill School. Students must register in advance. We cannot accept registration the day of the event. This event has a minimum registration of 12 students in order for it to take place.
