Senate Page Program
U.S. Senate Page Program
Senate Pages play an important role in day-to-day operations of the United States Senate. High school students who are selected for and participate in the Senate Page Program are afforded a unique opportunity to work in the Senate and learn about Congress and the legislative process while maintaining their regular coursework. The Senate Page Program is administered by the Sergeant-at-Arms, the Secretary of the Senate and the party secretaries.
During the fall and spring sessions, Senate Pages attend school in the morning and work while the Senate is in session. The fall session runs from early-September until mid-January and the spring session runs from mid-January to early June. The summer months of June and July are split between two sessions. Fall and Spring Page eligibility is limited to juniors in high school who will be 16 or 17 years old on or before the date of appointment. Summer Page eligibility is limited to students who have completed their sophomore year of high school and who will be 16 or 17 years old on or before the date of appointment. More information on the program and eligibility can be found here.
