Mission Statement
Georgia's Official State School
Message from President Carter

The Education Program at the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site is a partnership between the Georgia Department of Education, Sumter County Schools and the National Park Service.

This program began in 1996 with the opening of Plains High School Museum as the main visitors’ center for the National Historic Site. The Georgia Department of Education has a field office at Plains High School Museum with a certified teacher to develop and coordinate field trip activities. Teacher in-service training will be offered throughout the year.
