School Programs

Georgia Aquarium educational experience is an opportunity for students to discover the aquatic realm in an immersive learning environment. The Aquarium's Education Department strives to make the educational experience an extension of the classroom.

Georgia Aquarium offers two program options for school groups when visiting the world's most magical aquarium. Students can participate in an instructor-led program or a general admission self-guided program. Educational Experiences are available Monday - Friday during the operating academic semesters of August - December and January - May.

All of the Aquarium’s education programs are aligned with Georgia Performance Standards (GPS). So whether your students enjoy one of our instructor-led education programs or they explore the Aquarium on their own with our self-guided program, their experience will infuse with Georgia Performance Standards.
