Constitutional Academy

Our annual summer program brings together high school students from across the country to Washington, D.C. for a week of deep discussions on critical issues and interactions with scholars, policy-makers, and national thought leaders. Participants also make new friends, tour the monuments and museums, and connect with professionals throughout the D.C. area.

This program is open to rising high school juniors, seniors, and college freshman.

This program will invite students from across the United States to undertake a dialogue and set of sessions that balance high-concept philosophical thought with real-world - and somewhat controversial - explorations of how these ideas are not just theory – but form the basis of daily life in America. Over the course of six days, students from across the United States will gather together in person for a varied series of learning sessions, dialogues with key voices and each other, and visits to sites that expound on the themes of Equality and Justice – culminating in a rich project that exemplifies what students experience in the program.
