Washington, DC - Wheaton Academy

Washington, DC

We are excited for our upcoming trip to Washington, D.C. as a course option for Winterim. We will be participating in the Close Up Washington  program, a dynamic hands-on civic education program for high school students. Not only do students get the opportunity to experience Washington, D.C., the Winterim course also fulfills the senior Government and Current Issues graduation requirement. Note: A history teacher will supplement Mr. Dykema’s leadership during the instruction on campus.


Families that wish to have their students participate in and attend any WA trip that requires a family financial contribution must first have their tuition account current at the time of application and until the trip departure.
