The U.S. Capitol Page Alumni Association is an organization of former House, Senate and Supreme Court Pages who lived, worked, and studied on Capitol Hill during some or all of their high school years. It was formed in 2008 by a group of former Pages as an independent nonprofit 501(c)3 organization with the goal of connecting all who have shared the unique experience of serving as a Page on Capitol Hill.
A formal Page Program has existed at different times in the U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate, and U.S. Supreme Court. Although at times students from all three institutions studied at the same Capitol Page School in the Library of Congress, each institution maintained its own customs and traditions.
Since the Association’s founding, volunteers have compiled a list of former Pages that now includes more than 11,000 individuals who served across all three institutions. This list represents more than a century of Pages, from the oldest known living Page, who graduated in 1932, to the most recent U.S. Senate Pages, who just completed their junior year of high school.
In August 2011, the House of Representatives shuttered its Page Program, ending an unbroken tradition that spanned more than 200 years. As a result, the Alumni Association broadened its purpose beyond hosting alumni events and connecting former Pages. The Association is now also working to preserve and promote the unique history of the Page experience and advocate for continued opportunities for civic education for America’s youth.
If you once served as a Page in the U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate, or the U.S. Supreme Court, we invite you to connect with us. We would love to include you in our network.
Furthermore, if you would like to attend our social gatherings and get involved in our work, please join us!
