Home Educators' Day is an annual event that welcomes the home school community and offers special tours and activities throughout Monticello’s Visitor Center and historic grounds.
Students can explore a variety of Jeffersonian topics at indoor and outdoor hands-on activity stations, take a special guided tour of Monticello, roll hoops and play games on the West Lawn, hike our trails, and more.
