The Washington, D.C. Education Program is the core of American Christian Tours education programs.  The Washington, D.C. program can be anywhere from 3 - 5 days in length.  It is designed to be a stand-alone program although many schools choose to add additional programs to it.  The following is a sample itinerary of the Washington, D.C. Education Program.  Your itinerary will be customized specifically for your groups needs.
Today you will travel to your nationís capital, Washington, D.C. Upon arrival, you will be met by your ACTS Education Program Leader who will be your group through the duration of your program. 

A trip to the base of the Washington Monument provides an overview of the famous National Mall. 

Your Evening "Illumination Tour" includes visits to the Jefferson Memorial and the F.D.R. Memorial.  Then it's off to the hotel for check-in and orientation. 

Meal Included: Dinner
On this very special day, we visit Arlington National Cemetery. We will see many important sites, with major stops being the Custis-Lee Mansion, the Kennedy gravesites, the U.S.S. Maine Memorial, and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

At the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, (if an appointment has been received) selected students may represent your school in a wreath-laying ceremony.

We will then travel to Mount Vernon for a visit to George Washingtonís ancestral home.

Tonight's Illumination Tour will include stops at the Air Force Memorial and the United States Marine Corps (Iwo Jima) Memorial.

Meals Included: Breakfast and Dinner
This morning we take a trip to the top of the Washington Monument. The National Mall, Capitol, White House, Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials, and other sites will come into view atop the 555-foot tall landmark. Our visit to the nearby World War II Memorial will remind us of the joint efforts of Americans both serving in battle and those on the homefront.

From there, we head to the Smithsonian Museums located on the National Mall. This gift from a British scientist was created "for the increase and diffusion of knowledge among men."

A visit to the National Archives allows us to view on display three of our nationís most precious documents.

Tonight we will hear from a famous American being portrayed as part of the American Christian Tours exclusive "Christians in History" evening program.

Meals Included: Breakfast and Dinner
We will spend the entire morning on Capitol Hill, visiting the Supreme Court, Library of Congress, and of course, the United States Capitol Building tour.

We then visit the Holocaust Museum. This museum is dedicated to millions of victims of Nazi atrocities during World War II, with the motto "Never Forget."

On tonight's "Illumination Tour," we will see several memorials including the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial, and the Korean War Veteran's Memorial. 

Meals Included: Breakfast and Dinner
This morning we visit the exterior of the White House (interior if appointment has been secured), home to every American President except George Washington.

Next, we will have photo opportunities of Fordís Theatre, where President Lincoln was shot, and the Petersen House, where he later died.

We head up to the Washington National Cathedral, the 6th largest cathedral in the world.  Along the way we may pass along Embassy Row.

We will either depart for the airport or continue your educational experience with a visit to another destination!
