OUR CHAPERONE POLICY
As displayed below, the following numbers of chaperones are required and are admitted free. Personal student aides are not included in the count and are admitted free. Additional chaperones are admitted at the student rate, with some exceptions. With groups larger than 80 students, space considerations may require us to limit the number of additional chaperones.
Chaperones are required in the following ratios:

Clayton, Car and Carriage Museum and Unite Progra

Students 5 5 8
Thanks to everyone who adapted the program toward history. Your staff and facilities added so much more than books and technology could ever do. Our students came away with a wealth of information that will stay with them for a lifetime. Thank you!

The Frick Art Museum Programs
If lunchtime is not included in your program, limited facilities may be available at a cost of $30 per group with 30 students or fewer or $1.00 per student for groups larger than 30.
Remember to check availability when you book your program. It may not be available later and it must be reserved in advance. Also, don’t forget that adding lunchtime lengthens your field trip time.
JUST FOR TEACHERS
Gather a group of at least six teachers and discover how to make curriculum connections to the resources of the Frick! Take a specialized two-hour tour of Clayton, The Frick Art Museum or the Car and Carriage Museum. Act 48 credit optional. This program is free, but dates are limited. For details or to schedule your program, contact Laura Ainsley, 412-371-0600, ext 540 or lainsley@TheFrickPittsburgh.org.
Once again we are grateful to an anonymous donor who has provided us with scholarship funds for a limited number of school groups to visit the Frick, September through March. Full or partial scholarships are awarded to Pennsylvania schools based on the percentage of students enrolled in the free or reduced lunch program on a first come, first served basis.
