For Schools & Teachers

Teacher in front of blackboardDear Educator:
We are delighted that you are planning a school group visit to the United States Capitol. We look forward to greeting you and your students upon your arrival.

For the 2012-13 school year, the Capitol Visitor Center is pleased to offer two new inquiry-based student programs at the Capitol for middle and high school groups of 30 students or fewer. Teachers may select one of two programs. Click here for more information.

If these new programs do not fit into your schedule, please feel free to book a tour of the Capitol through the advance reservation system under the “plan a visit” button at the top of this page.
