We are here for you, teachers and home-schooling parents!

We remain flexible and continue to evolve our educational programs with changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, including offering virtual field trip experiences. We have implemented comprehensive safety protocols to protect students and staff so that they can attend and safely enjoy our field trips. Please Note: Arts and Heritage educational programs are operated under the provincial Restrictions Exemption Program. Teachers, parent helpers and students aged 12 and up must provide valid proof of vaccination, proof of a negative COVID-19 rapid test result taken within 72 hours of the program, or documentation of a medical exemption. Learn more about our safety protocols here.

The AHF has knowledgable Indigenous Programmers that are available to teachers and students for both classroom lessons and professional development.

The Musée Héritage Museum programming collection is available to teachers in an online format. Our programming collection can assist you in your Language, Arts, Social Studies or Science lessons and our Educational Programmers can walk you through the artifacts and share their knowledge with your students.

The Art Gallery of St. Albert is offering virtual and online gallery tours, along with virtual art programs that include curb side pickup of art kits for your classroom. As always, the Gallery’s educational clay, multi-media and Indigenous art programs can be tailored to your classroom or students’ learning needs. *Limited availability for virtual programs. 

Our school field trip programming complements and integrates the Alberta Curriculum with activities that bring cultural history and art to life. They provoke discussion and enrich learning in social studies, language arts, science, religion, history (including Indigenous history & culture) and art.
