Curious about boarding at Madeira? Interested in taking a tour of Capitol Hill and learning more about one of Madeira’s internship experiences? If so, the Capitol Hill Overnight event is for you. (If you live locally, please note that preference for this event is given to prospective boarding students who live outside the Washington D.C./Northern Virginia area.) We will confirm your participation at least two weeks before the event.
Arrive on campus Sunday afternoon to take a campus tour before tinkering in our Makerspace and Fab Lab. Then it's off to dinner followed by an evening of exciting activities like s'mores on the Quad! Top off a great day by sleeping over in one of our dorms with your student host!
On Monday, you’ll attend class before departing for Capitol Hill with members of the Admissions staff so you can take a tour, have lunch and see the offices of our Madeira interns. Finish the day back on campus to meet back up with your parents and attend our weekly Community Meeting. Parents, you get to enjoy Washington on Sunday evening, and then join us Monday morning for programming on campus while your girls are on Capitol Hill.
Please note that a parent/guardian is required to travel and stay locally. Learn more about nearby hotel accommodations, please visit this link: Where to Stay
