What exactly is a Page? Pages have been serving the House of Representatives for nearly 200 years. Working as a team, Pages assist Congress Members with their legislative duties, deliver correspondence and small packages within the congressional complex, answer phones in the Member cloakrooms, and prepare the House Floor for sessions.
High school juniors with a GPA of 3.0 or higher in core academic subjects may apply to work as Pages in the U.S. House of Representatives for a fall or spring appointment. There is no GPA requirement for Pages who work during the summer semester. While serving the House, Pages live in Washington, D.C., at the Page Residence Hall, a few blocks away from the Capitol. During the academic year, Pages attend classes at the House Page School. Pages must be sponsored by a Member of Congress and be at least 16 years old on the date they begin their term. All communication regarding the Page program must be made through the applicant’s sponsoring Congress Member.
