8th Grade Trip

2023-24 School Year

The eighth-grade trip Brooks and Julian middle schools will take place Saturday, March 16 - Tuesday, March 19, 2024 in Washington, D.C. 

We will be partnering with Close Up, a non-profit organization that since 1971 has provided hands-on experiential programs for over 1 million students and teachers from across the country. Using the nation’s capital as a living classroom, students will get a “close up” view of American history, government, and democracy in action. 

Close Up’s unique, all-inclusive programs allow for students to have a fun and educational Washington, D.C. experience they will never forget. Below you'll find information on the trip, including communication to families, important dates and deadlines throughout the 2023-24 school year.

 If your student plans to attend the trip, please complete the Student Interest Form by Sept. 27 at 3 p.m. 

Please know that financial assistance is available for those who qualify. If you would like to discuss options, please contact [email protected].
