Close Up is a national program that allows students from all over the USA to visit Washington D.C. while providing them with an excellent first-hand opportunity to study our government. Students meet in November and devise ways to earn money for the spring trip. Meetings are regularly held and become mandatory 2 months before the trip. Students love the entire experience and come home with many new ideas, friends and memories. They develop a better understanding of and appreciation for our American governmental system. Some students may choose to earn a Social Studies elective credit by following a set list of requirements. All students agree that it is a fun and rewarding experience.
