On January 14, 58 Mount Carmel Academy students traveled to Washington DC as part of the week-long Close-Up program. The program is designed to give hands-on experiences that not only educate, but inspire and empower students to take on active roles in our democracy. They will witness the inner workings of our government, meet politicians, interact students from across the country, and gain the knowledge and confidence needed to become informed, engaged citizens. The group will also visit museums, monuments, and government buildings.
