April kicks off Close Up’s donation drive! Click here to support our schools.


Close Up’s signature curriculum and methodology allows us to meet a number of significant common core standards. Our program’s educationally rich design also fulfills state social studies standards across the nation. We take seriously our responsibility to ensure that teachers, parents and communities can have confidence that students’ experiences in Washington complement and extend the educational aims of the social studies classroom.

If you would like to receive a copy of how Close Up programs meet your state standards, please email us.


"I will implement everything that I have learned on Close Up within my lessons!"
