The Senate Page Program provides a unique opportunity for high school students who have a desire to learn and contribute to our nation’s legislative process. There are a total of 30 pages per session and each is appointed by a senator. Senator Portman is honored to be able to participate in this highly competitive program by appointing one student per session.
Senate page duties consist primarily of preparing the Senate chamber for Senate sessions and delivering bills and amendments onto the Senate floor. Other duties include delivering correspondence and legislative material within the Congressional complex. Pages in the spring and fall sessions attend academically rigorous classes in the early morning at the U.S. Senate Page School, a program fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
Senate pages receive a salary, from which is deducted income tax and room-and-board fees. Pages are housed a few blocks from the Capitol in Webster Hall and must wear uniforms provided by the Senate while on duty.
Basic page requirements are the following:
Must be in junior year of high school
Must be at least 16, but not 18 years old
Mush have at least a 3.0 GPA
Must be a US Citizen
Must have all required vaccinations (This includes receiving both Covid-19 vaccine doses at least 2 weeks prior to January 30)
