The Graceland Education Program is a unique, enriching experience that is designed to engage young minds and show every visitor—student or teacher— the path to making dreams a reality just as Elvis Presley did.
Our practical learning program uses the impact of Elvis storytelling, the dynamic use of technology through our iPad tour and the environment of Elvis Presley's home, Graceland, in Memphis, Tennessee.
It enhances the power of active participation to spark creativity and capture the hidden potential within your students. We think you’ll find this incredible experience to be one of the best field trips in Memphis.
The Graceland Education Program "Schooled on Rock" offers a unique experience tailored to match your students' needs and curriculum, including homeschool groups. Our learning program can be designed around the many facets of Elvis Presley's life.
