Our School Programs

All America City

The All America City program is Preservation Worcester’s premier education program.  Designed to fit the Massachusetts third grade curriculum requirements for History and Social Science, the program uses the city’s architecture as a key to unlock students’ understanding of Worcester history.  Enriching everyday history and social science classes with site-based learning, the program includes an initial, illustrated classroom presentation followed by a field trip.  

Seeing Worcester Architecture

Tailored to the third, fourth, and fifth grades, the Seeing Worcester Architecture program is an expanded version of the Third Grade All America City program.  A collaborative effort between Preservation Worcester and school staff, this program gives students a solid grounding in Worcester history and architecture – building from year to year on the lessons learned the year before.

Education Fund 

Since 1969 Preservation Worcester has strengthened and enhanced our community though our education programs.  Susan has been instrumental in our efforts nearly that entire time both as a volunteer and most recently as staff. The Fund will be used to underwrite trainings, programs and notable speakers to further educate docents and/or the general public on historic preservation matters.


Thank you for supporting our initiatives.

Training Program

Join us to learn about the history of our city, our buildings, our neighborhoods, and architectural styles.


No prior experience or training is required.  All we ask is a commitment to attend ten weekly training sessions (September-November) and during the winter months, complete a final research project that you will present to the class. We will help you select the topic.
