The George Washington Teacher Institute Residential Programs are highly competitive educational experiences which bring teachers to Mount Vernon for an intensive course of study. Participants immerse themselves in the study and discussion of important themes in American history and the remarkable role George Washington played in the founding of our nation. Programs are offered annually in the Spring, Summer, and Fall.
Teacher Fellowship Program
Recognizing the need for America's elementary and secondary school students to gain a richer understanding and appreciation for George Washington’s leadership and character, these short-term fellowships are intended to educate America’s students in the history of our founding era – and particularly in the remarkable traits and accomplishments of George Washington –as an investment in the future of our nation.
Regional Workshops and Conferences
Each year the Education Staff at Mount Vernon travel across the United States to host day long regional workshops for teachers. You can also find the staff at numerous regional and national education conferences each year.
