School Partnerships

School partners enjoy collections-based, collaborative programming that enrich both teachers and students with a blend of classroom and museum education. Students explore ways The Huntington's collections can inspire wonder, while teachers become empowered to utilize The Huntington's collections to enhance their curriculum. Together, these partnerships support a community of inquiry, life-long learning, and enhanced student achievement.

School partnerships are available in the following collection areas:

  • Art
  • Botanical
  • Library
  • Science & Art
  • Performance

A partnership focused on Teacher Education will also be offered.
