The U.S. Naval Academy invited a select group of about 2,250 young men and women from around the nation and abroad to attend the Naval Academy Summer Seminar program this year.
Summer Seminar is a fast-paced leadership experience for rising seniors in high school. This program helps educate, motivate and prepare selected students who are considering applying for admission USNA.
Michael A. Green, a student at Loyalsock Township High School, will participate in the 2012 U.S. Naval Academy, where academics, athletics and professional training are key elements in developing the nation's leaders.
Each student will attend a six-day session and experience a glimpse of USNA life. Students will have the opportunity to live in Bancroft Hall, eat in King Hall and participate in academic and leadership workshops. They also will participate in daily physical training involving group runs and conditioning exercises. They will experience first-hand what the Naval Academy has to offer through its exceptional academic, athletic, extracurricular activities and leadership training programs.
Summer Seminar has an academic focus, with each student attending eight 90-minute workshops, covering subjects from information technology, naval architecture and mechanical engineering, to oceanography, mathematics, history, and meteorology. Students will participate in seamanship and navigation classes and will take a cruise abroad a Navy Yard Patrol Craft to apply what they will learn in class. Naval Academy Midshipmen lead Summer Seminar with oversight by active-duty Navy and Marine Corps officers.
