School Visit Rates

To receive the following rates for your Zoo visit, you must meet the following criteria:

You MUST be a New York State public, private, parochial or home-school program visiting the Zoo for an educational purpose. Pre-Kindergarten programs are also considered schools. You must have AT LEAST 10 individuals 3 years of age or older.

Before school, after school and daycare programs located within a school do not qualify as a school program (Please see Group Rates).

One teacher or chaperone for every 5 students is free. Additional chaperones must pay the School Rate. Seneca Park Zoo members coming as part of a School Group Visit are charged the School Rate. In this case, they are not free because they are coming as part of this program.

If you do not meet this criteria, please visit the Group Rates page.
