Education & Humanities Programs

Education Programs

As part of the effort to fulfill our mission, St. Croix Landmarks Society offers free or low-cost education and humanities programs throughout the year to the Virgin Islands community. The primary objective of our programs is to facilitate the development of a sense of self, place, and responsibility in youth and adult residents and visitors. We recognize the importance of knowing who we are and understanding the values that guided our ancestors. We believe that, with that knowledge, we can recognize where we fit in our families, the community, and the world; and we can embrace our responsibility to those who came before us and to those who will follow.

We organize classes, lectures, workshops, camps, and other interactive programs that promote stewardship of the Virgin Islands' historic sites, stories, traditions, customs, and people. These programs encourage the exchange of new and diverse ideas that can foster social and economic betterment. Our current education and humanities programs include:
