The Model Congress Club is designed for academically interested students to learn more about issues affecting our nation and our world.
Each year, the Model Congress Club prepares for a Model Congress conference. We have attended conferences at Rutgers University as well as the University of Pennsylvania. These conferences are held in the spring. The Model Congress Conference gives students a chance to take on the role of a congressional representative and become involved in a simulated session of the United States Congress. Participants research issues affecting our nation and world, debate, consult and negotiate with other delegates and then develop solutions to problems.
We also participate in activities at school to educate classmates about issues facing our country and the world. And, we take field trips to enhance our learning. We have been to the United Nations headquarters, Ellis Island, the Constitution Center, the New Jersey State House, Princeton, the Cloisters, the Roebling Museum and more.
