The U.S. Capitol Page Alumni Association is the organization for former House, Senate and Supreme Court pages who worked and studied on Capitol Hill during their high school years. The Association was formed in 2008 by a group of former pages who sought a way to bring together those who shared this incredibly unique high school experience and who had the special opportunity to grow, and mature in the shadow of Capitol. Their mission is to serve former pages in the following ways:

  • Bringing together former pages from across generational lines
  • Hosting events
  • Fostering a sense of civic responsibility
  • Mentoring
  • Sharing and preserving the page program’s unique history
