The Zoo offers something for the whole community, but we have lots of programs geared specifically for teachers and their students:
- Reinforce classroom lessons in a fun, motivating atmosphere
- Utilize activities based on the Ohio Academic Content Standards to plan a memorable, educational field trip
- Brush up on your own science skills
- Or simply fuel your personal love of wildlife and wild places
Our teacher pages will help you find out how. Please check back often for updates and new program availability.
Travel Vouchers Make School Trips More Affordable
With a group reservation, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo offers free admission to students within Cuyahoga County. Students (grades PreK-12) outside Cuyahoga County pay only $4.00 per admission. To further help with costs, the Zoo offers travel vouchers up to $250.00 regardless of school location if at least 30 percent of the student body participates in the federal free and reduced-lunch program. A limited number of vouchers are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Additional details and eligibility criteria are listed on the online application form. Apply now!
