During your first 48 hours at the St. Albans School of Public Service, you might take part in a mock Supreme Court argument of a current case, visit the Supreme Court to talk to a sitting Justice, and get argument tips from some of the top Supreme Court lawyers in the country.

What might you do the rest of your four weeks this summer? Debate key public policy issues using graduate-level case studies. Take part in a sophisticated public policy simulation where you are a member of a political action committee--you'll draft proposed legislation on your pet issue, seek Congressional sponsors for your bill, and present and defend your bill at a press conference...but will the full Congress pass it? Enter into the fray in a debate about how to best tackle climate change. Talk to public servants from Senators to FBI Agents to State Department Foreign Service Officers to prize-winning journalists to entrepreneurs running innovative non-profits. Explore DC, from the Monuments to the Museums to the National Mall.

Oh, and debate and argue and discuss politics and public policy with 40-45 students your age from all over the country and the world (all of whom, like you, have a passionate interest in public service, public policy, politics, or government).

The School of Public Service is a one-month co-educational residential and day summer program for rising high school seniors. Students live at the historic St. Albans School, located on the grounds of the Washington National Cathedral. Local students from the Metropolitan DC area may also attend as day students. Interested in a closer look? Check out our website.

In the summer of 2020 and 2021, when it was not possible to hold the program in person, the School of Public Service continued as a remote program, complete with a speaker program, case study discussions, and public policy simulations. We held the session in person in the summers of 2022 and 2023 intend to do the same in the summer of 2024 but our website will have the most up-to-date information should plans change in any way for the summer of 2024.
