School Program Registration Request Form

Requests for Bronx Zoo School Programs are accepted from September through the end of May. Your registration request is not confirmed until you receive a confirmation email containing a contract and invoice, including order number. The Registrar will contact you directly if the dates you requested cannot be accommodated. Due to a high volume of requests, we highly recommend registering far in advance, especially for programs between February and May. PLEASE NOTE: WE HAVE VERY LIMITED AVAILABILITY FOR SCHOOL PROGRAMS DURING APRIL AND MAY, AND ARE UNABLE TO ACCOMMODATE SCHOOLS WITH MULTIPLE CLASSES Before submitting your request, please consult your school's calendar regarding bus maintenance days, testing, school holidays, and half days. Please fill out one form for each program request. For questions regarding Bronx Zoo School Programs, email bzeducation@wcs.org.
