Earn College Credit

Close Up has a unique partnership with American University to offer college credit for our high school Washington Flagship Program. American University is distinguished as a premier global university and known for turning “ideas into action and action into service.” As a result of this Close Up/AU alliance, students attending the Close Up high school program have the opportunity to earn college credit from American University. This credit option enhances your education within the framework of your program, without interrupting Close Up activities.
