USNA Summer Programs Applications are now open!

Greetings from Annapolis! With winter halfway through and spring on the horizon, the Office of Admissions team at the United States Naval Academy is actively gearing up to host high school students from across the nation at our two marquis summer programs, Summer STEM Camp and Naval Academy Summer Seminar.

Summer STEM Camp is designed to spark and cultivate interest in the many academic disciplines which make up science, technology, engineering and mathematics. A hands-on, design-based program, Naval Academy Summer STEM will challenge students to think scientifically, problem-solve creatively, and work cooperatively in teams. Open to rising 9th, 10th and 11th graders, Summer STEM is led by USNA faculty and currently enrolled midshipmen and is a great fit for students looking to broaden their understanding of STEM study and careers.

The United States Naval Academy Summer Seminar is a fast-paced, six-day experience for high achievers who have completed their junior year in high school. Summer Seminar teaches students about life at the Naval Academy, where academics, athletics, and professional training play equally important roles in developing our nation's leaders. If you feel you would be interested in pursuing an appointment to one of the nation's service academies and serving the country as an officer, encourage them to consider attending the Naval Academy's Summer Seminar.

If you have questions about our programs or would like additional information or literature to share with your students, please feel free to contact the Office of Admissions at summerprograms@usna.edu, or (410) 293-1858
