Since the Gilder Lehrman Institute launched History School in April 2020, more than 5,000 students have participated in twenty-eight courses with our award-winning teachers.

This summer we are offering five free virtual courses with opportunities for students in upper elementary, middle, and high school. Elementary school students will virtually travel to different national parks across the country; middle school students will explore the “living history” of food, music, dance, art, and more; and high school students can enroll in AP US History, AP Government and Politics, and World Wars courses.

Full list of Summer 2022 History School Programs:

  • History Camp: National Park Adventure (Grades 3-5)

  • Living History: Culture as a Force in Human Experience (Grades 6-8)

  • World Wars I and II: Life on the Home Front (Grades 9-12)
