This year has brought forth a ton of change for both the education system and the theme park industry. However, it seems that Dollywood has used their thinkin’-caps and devised a plan that’ll help the two work as one. Now through Sept. 21st, Dollywood will be hosting its annual Homeschool Days. Sure, it is not a new idea. Alas, we are glad to see it has made its way back in a time when “cutting’ seems to be the name of the game. This particularly helps those who are staying home in the Fall by offering an educational experience that reaches far beyond the laptop lessons. From history to physics, Dollywood provides the ultimate educational field trip for students of all ages.


Students from Kindergarten through their senior year of high school can purchase a ticket to the park for just $37 plus tax, with attending adults at $47 plus tax.

Advanced Booking Required

Homeschool tickets are not available at the front gate. However, they may be purchased by calling (888) 428-6789 Monday through Friday.

Guests must purchase the tickets at least 72 hours in advance of their planned visit.

Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort and Spa also offers Homeschool Days specials. Guests can call about special rates when purchasing tickets. The rate of $129/night is available for homeschoolers from now until Sept. 24, but the rates are only valid for nights Sunday through Thursday.

Workbooks or Worksheets

Guests can download workbooks or worksheets online before their visit, so homeschoolers can absorb all the educational facets that Dollywood has to offer. You can find them here.
