Interested in more than one week? Check out our D.C. Discovery Weekend.
Explore Washington, D.C. and its unique resources through multiple lenses, including conservation science, political leadership and cultural impact. As the city itself becomes teacher, textbook and classroom, students will meet with local entrepreneurs, explore the theater and music scene’s impact on DC’s culture and history, and hold a roundtable Q&A with a senator exploring the principles of political leadership. The Impact Experience takes full advantage of Episcopal’s proximity to the capital, and students will enjoy a taste of boarding school life as they learn from local entrepreneurs, technologists, scientists, government officials and artists.
