Homeschool Programs

We know that many homeschooling families embrace the freedom they have to enjoy experiences beyond the four walls of the traditional classroom. Let the Zoo be your real-life, fresh-air, nearby learning lab. Take advantage of the opportunity to leave the computer and make contact with the exotic without leaving Oklahoma City.
Please contact Cargill Learning Center to reserve your place. Classes take place rain or shine.

Homeschool Fees:

Homeschool 2013-2014:

Each month we will focus on a science concept. Learning activities may include animal encounters, exhibit tours and much more. All are designed to reinforce these science topics.

Check back in August for dates and times of fall classes.
