International Discovery Program

At The Heights School


The goals of The Heights International Discovery Camp are to enable visiting students and faculty to learn more about Science and History and experience the culture and language of the United States through daily trips, while hosted by faculty of The Heights School in our nation’s capital. English is the official language of our program. The successful outcomes of this program are the result of mutual efforts between schools and the cooperation of leading members of our schools.

Update: We expect camp life and activities to be back to normal this summer for our visiting international groups during the dates of July 30-Aug 13.  Local summertime health statistics and high rates of immunity or vaccination continue to offer reasons for confidence that our area will be able to provide some much needed normalcy and will remain among the safest places in the world, with excellent same-day healthcare always readily available.  Please feel free to email the director with any questions you may have at
