The school subscription system implementation program is designed for the teachers and 1-st-12-th-grade pupils of public secondary schools. The implementation of the system allows each pupil and teacher to have free access to three cultural institutions once a year. The objective of the program is to promote the connection between the school and the cultural center to foster the artistic upbringing and the aesthetic development of children and juveniles.
The school subscription system implementation program, implemented by the RA Ministries of Culture, and Education and Science (now MoESCS), was launched since November 2018. In the frame of the program, 35201 pupils and teachers visited museums under the Ministry of Culture and 4811 participants visited other museums from November - December 2018.
