Register by Nov. 3 for Close Up Washington Trip

The Close Up Washington DC Program is an annual trip to our nation’s capital for 10th, 11th and 12th graders. This year’s trip is scheduled for March 3-8, 2013. Participants will have the opportunity to use Washington DC as their classroom, meet peers from around the country, and learn about American history, politics and civics through interactive workshops and field trips. We’ll visit monuments, memorials and museums, spend a day on Capitol Hill and meet with members of Massachusetts’ Congressional delegation. By the end of the week, students will have developed skills in how to become more effective and informed citizens. The registration deadline for this program is November 3.
