Longwood Grants for Title I Schools

Thank you for your interest in The Longwood Grant for Title 1 Schools. As we all continue to work together to limit the spread of COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel remaining K-12 programs through September 30.

The Longwood Grant for Title 1 Schools provides the opportunity for schools with 30% or more of the student population qualifying for the Free or Reduced Lunch Program to visit the Gardens and participate in an Onsite K-12 Program. Transportation reimbursement is available to schools that have 50% or more of the student population qualifying for the Free or Reduced Lunch Program. Participants in the program can also receive a special ticket to return to the Gardens. 

Grants are awarded on a first-come basis. Individual teachers may receive one grant per school year for up to 120 students. All grant applications must be completed and approved before scheduling a visit date.

Onsite K-12 Programs

Onsite K-12 Programs are available Tuesday–Friday at 10:00 am or 12:00 pm. Programs run 90 minutes. 

Groups are welcome to enjoy the Gardens before or after their scheduled program.

3 weeks advance registration and a minimum of 15 students are required. 

Onsite K-12 Programs are not available during A Longwood Christmas.
