    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 have students you feel 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.

    We recognize your students have many options to fill their summer days and wish to thank you for bringing the opportunities at the Naval Academy to their attention. 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.

    Junior year is when the application process to the Academy truly begins. Students will start by filling out the Pre-Candidate Questionnaire, which becomes available online March 1 every year. Between March 1 of their junior year and December 31 of their senior year, students must submit a completed Pre-Candidate Questionnaire. If they are ready to begin their application, they can visit the Pre-Candidate Questionnaire online.
    Between March 1 of their junior year and December 31 of their senior year, they must also request nominations from their state’s congressional representative(s) or other designated nominator. If they are interested in seeing what life at the Academy is really like, they should consider applying to participate in our Summer Seminar program, designed for high school juniors during the summer before their senior year. This program is highly competitive and there are limited number of spaces available. NOTE: As with any top university, competition for admission to the Academy is extremely high. In addition to applying to the Academy, their college application strategy should include a backup plan. We recommend that they apply to a select number of colleges in addition to the Academy. To pursue an interest in the Air Force, they may also wish to request and submit an applications for Air Force ROTC.
    **The United States Air Force Academy and Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) offers an Engineering/STEM camp designed for high school students who excel in math, science and technology courses and are interested in pursuing engineering, architecture, or a related field in college or a military service academy. This one week camp is high energy and hands-on for students from across the country and around the world. The camp is lead by a professional staff of engineers from both private industry, the Air Force, other uniformed military services, USAFA cadets and college students from across the country.

    This will be our 15th year running the camp at USAFA in Colorado Springs, CO. This program features very real engineering activities and challenges. The camp theme is "Build then Design". The idea is to let the students learn by doing and then reinforce the concepts after the practical application with the supporting concepts. Some of the activities during the week-long camp include: place a concrete beam and destructive testing, water purification, build an irrigation system, material testing, shed construction, AFA laboratory tours, problem-solving activities and many more...

    These tasks challenge students to use their imagination, as well as their problem solving and teamwork skills.

    This year's camp runs from 25 June to 1 July 2015, information on the application process and eligibility can be found here.
