Constitution Day


Constitution Day is a national holiday celebrated to ensure that students in our country gain an increased knowledge and appreciation for the Constitution of the United States of America. Observed on September 17th of each year, the day for that coincides with the date that the delegates of the Constitutional Convention signed the document in Philadelphia in 1787. In December 2004, the United States Congress passed legislation requiring that all educational institutions that receive federal funds implement educational programs relating to the United States Constitution in commemoration of Constitution Day. 

Take the opportunity to expand your knowledge of the U.S. Constitution, the document that provides the basis of our everyday freedoms, and the foundation of our country.
