Close Up

This month, 11th grade students participating in Close Up went on the annual week-long trip to Washington, D.C. This National Youth Leadership Conference provides students with an inside look at the operations of government at the local, state and national level. Students met with elected officials on Capitol Hill, participated in a Mock Congress and learned about the American political system. They were also able to visit famous monuments, Smithsonian Institution museums, and see awe-inspiring memorials!
