The Fort Pitt Museum and Point State Park invites homeschool students to participate in a series of in-depth classes related to the history and environment of the Forks of the Ohio River. Classes will be both hands-on and minds-on and include reading and writing activities, student led discussions, hiking, and outdoor observation.

This homeschool program is for students in grades 7-8.


  • Students will learn basic map and compass reading skills.
  • Students will use a map and compass to navigate to locations within Point State Park.
  • Students will go on a hike along the riverfront trails in downtown Pittsburgh and take map and compass readings to determine location, bearing, and to map out landmarks and significant landscape features.


This session costs $10 per student. Each class must be registered for individually online. Multiple students may be registered for the same class as part of one registration. Please register online.

This is a drop-off class, but parents and families are welcome to stay on site to visit the Fort Pitt Museum at no additional charge.

If the minimum number of students have not been registered, those registered for the class will be notified and registrations refunded. If and when the maximum number of students have been registered, please contact Kathleen Lugarich at kmlugarich@heinzhistorycenter.org to be placed on the waiting list and indicate the number of students and class.
