About

Do you remember the Washington, D.C. trip your junior year at MKA? What was your favorite memory from the trip? #MKADC

This annual trip for juniors to Washington, D.C. is a longstanding tradition at MKA. Each spring the History Department takes the entire junior class for a three day visit to our nation’s capital. This trip gives our students an opportunity to visit Congress while in session, visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture, as well as take part in small group meetings with briefing groups made possible by our incredible network of alumni and parents.

Your support of annual giving makes this trip possible and provides students with amazing opportunities for learning and growth. Help us enhance the success of all of our students. Invest in MKA today and make a difference!

The DC trip last year was amazing and I loved every second of it. I got to see Washington, D.C. in a way I never had before and get a better feel for what it’s like to work and live there. My group got to go to ICE and meet with MKA Alumnus Peter Edge. It was one of the most interesting and unique opportunities I’ve had and I’m extremely grateful.”

Going to the Museum of African American History yesterday and seeing all the monuments was really cool and interesting because it’s what we’ve been learning about all year in class.

My favorite memory at MKA was seeing Van Gogh at the National Gallery on the DC Trip last year!!

– Allison ‘18

Looking back now, the Junior trip to Washington was way more than a “reward” for having navigated the treacherous waters that was our Junior Thesis. Being exposed to the various Branches, but more so intricacies, of our Government via the amazing relationships MKA has forged in the DC area was something many don’t get to experience. I hope those undergrads take full advantage of the time they have down there!

– Stu Harwood ‘07

To be able to experience the nation’s capital with the same best friends I have today is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Filled with history and culture, the DC trip is one of those moments in my life that I’ll appreciate for years to come.

– Cait DiRuggiero ‘06

The DC trip is great because it brings you closer as a class. It’s filled with friendship and compassion.

Update #2 - 10 months ago

Our juniors have only been in D.C. for a little over 24 hours, and they have already visited the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture, the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial, and spent the day at the U.S. Capitol. Small gifts to MKA make a huge impact on our students. Last year individual gifts of $100 or less amounted to over $40,000!
