Education at Fort Concho
From school tours and Frontier School to summer events for children, Fort Concho has been offering educational programs for students for over 40 years. Schools throughout the Concho Valley and across Texas come to Fort Concho to explore our buildings and experience what it was like to live at a frontier fort in West Texas during the late 1800s.
The fort's longest running educational program, Frontier School provides an immersive learning experience. The program is modeled after a school day in the 1880s. Students will participate in reading lessons from period school readers, arithmetic lessons with slate chalk boards, a spelling bee, and period games.
