Model Congress is a co-curricular program which gives students the opportunity to to engage in a role-playing simulation of the United States Congress. Students can be on any of the Senate or House committees. In addition, students also may participate in a Supreme Court Activity, as well as an Executive Branch simulation. They research and draft legislation which is presented before committee members drawn from high schools across the country.
The Model Congresses are held at the University of Pennsylvania as well as Yale University, where our students not only debate the model legislation they have prepared but also have the opportunity to experience the breadth of campus life.
