Center High School DC TRIP


 

CHS Juniors and Seniors: Don't miss the opportunity
to tour Washington D.C. in February 2017!
 
A deposit of $400 is due on November 14 to secure your spot on a trip of a
lifetime.  Students need to visit Ms. Burleson in room 302 before November
14 to receive the pin number necessary to enroll and pay. The total cost
for the trip is $1,802.
 
To learn more about CloseUp, visit: http://www.closeup.org/home
 
To view a schedule of events, click here.
 
To view a brochure, click here.
 
"Throughout the week, students explore DC and interact with students from
all across the country. With the help of our program instructors, students
will consider how the people and events represented in DC’s memorials
impact their lives today. As a non-profit, non-partisan organization, Close
Up helps students learn more about their history and government while
considering a variety of viewpoints. This keeps students interested,
informed, and engaged. They are not just passively listening to a tour
guide—they are making a personal connection with the famous places of the
nation’s capital.
 
Close Up participants also take part in interactive seminars with
Washington insiders, including journalists, lobbyists, ambassadors, and
members of the Armed Services. The highlight of the week for many students
is our mid-week Capitol Hill Day, when students and teachers meet with
their Congressional delegation on the Hill."
