School Without Walls

CIA officers recently visited School Without Walls, an experiential learning high school in Washington D.C., as part of the Agency’s public outreach. The officers briefed the students on the CIA’s mission, history, and people, and clarified common misconceptions about what it is like to work for the Agency. The officers described a day in the life of a CIA officer and reassured the students that in all but the most sensitive of cases, CIA officers can tell their families generally what they do and where they are traveling in the world. There are also intra-agency support networks for the families of officers serving in dangerous locations.

Following the discussion, students presented hand-written thank-you notes to the officers (example shown below).
