Walk in the footsteps of our historic leaders.
Close Up’s Washington, DC and Williamsburg Program option gives students the best of both worlds: four action-packed days in the nation’s capital, plus one day in Colonial Williamsburg! In DC students get to witness democracy first-hand, and while in Colonial Williamsburg they examine how the colonists shaped American ideas about rights, democracy, and limited government. Guided by our highly-trained instructors, students have the opportunity to:

I plan to introduce Close Up’s professional development to the teachers I work with…
and use this as a part of my school’s requirement that students take action on issues of local, national, and international importance.
Close Up made me realize how SIGNIFICANT my thoughts and views are…
Although everyone will not always agree, everyone has a voice and needs to be heard.
Close Up is a positive experience for students…
seeing themselves as having the power to influence the democratic process.
As a government teacher, it’s nice to have more resources…
for teaching media literacy and having students critically think about the information they receive.
