Homeschool Zoocademy at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens is designed for students ages 5-12 and covers a wide range of topics in biology, zoology, environmental science, conservation, and more. Alongside one of our zoo Educators, your student will explore the zoo and the natural world around them! Students will "learn the wild way" through both classroom education and real-world experiences. Classes are divided by age group and offer lessons best suited to their grade level.
Please note the following:
Registration will be offered in two month sessions only. There will not be individual month sign up options.
Classes are for students ages 5-12 and will explore a different topic once a month throughout the school year. There will be several day and time options offered for each topic. Participants will be registered for both months included in the session (see session breakdown above). Participants will attend ONE class each month on the same day of the week each month. Each class will include lessons, animal encounters, activities and/or projects, and walks through the Zoo.
