6th Grade Explores "Ideas and Ideals" in DC

Our sixth graders are with their teachers in Washington, D.C., experiencing democracy in action as they spend three days exploring our nation's capital.

Among the experiences the boys will have during their stay are visits to the Smithsonian and the Capitol, a monuments tour, and a special session at the Supreme Court with one of Justice Kennedy's law clerks.

This is the fourth year of the annual DC tour; it is the culminating experience of the boys' two-year sequence in American history.

What better way for our boys to explore this year's school-wide theme "Ideas and Ideals" than to immerse themselves in the ideas and ideals of their republic in its capital.
