Annual Cultural/Educational Trip

Since 1992, each year COMPACT students compete in a rigorous yearlong contest that emphasizes good grades, attendance and behavior; verbal and written communication skills; and community service. Approximately 20 winners receive a week-long trip to Washington, D.C. The students learn how our government works, visit historical sites and museums, meet with high-ranking officials and have a grand time.

The highlight of each trip has been a two hour dialogue with Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
