Around the Capitol

Day in the Life of a Page

House Pages are high school juniors that work in the House for one school semester—fall, spring, or summer. They help Members by delivering messages and small packages within the Capitol, answering phones in the Member Cloakrooms, and preparing the House Floor for sessions.

Pages do more than just work—during the fall and spring terms they go to school too! The Page School is located in the Library of Congress, where the Pages take math, science, English, and history classes—all with a view of the Capitol. Between work and school, the Pages’ days are very busy—they have lots to do before returning to the Page Residence Hall at night.

To see how Pages spend their time, check out “A Day in the Life of a Page.”
