General Information

Close Up’s High School Programs are designed to give students and educators an inside look at their democracy in action. Using the nation’s capital as a living classroom, participants get a “close up” view of government - interacting with the people, processes, and places that make this federal city so unique. We also offer exciting add-on options that include additional days in Washington, and opportunities to visit Williamsburg, Gettysburg, Mt. Vernon, Philadelphia, or New York City!

In addition to our one-of-a-kind Washington High School Program, we customize trips for groups from around the country that are tailor-made to meet the specific needs of their group. Since 1971, nearly 800,000 students and educators have graduated from our experiential programs. And each year, we welcome students from every state and every U.S. territory on our fast-paced and educational programs in Washington, DC. We hope you will join us this year to experience all that the nation’s capital has to offer!
