ANNAPOLIS, Md. – The Naval Academy invited a select group of approximately 2,250 young men and women from around the nation to attend the Naval Academy Summer Seminar. The program is a fast-paced, six-day experience for high achievers who have completed their junior year in high school and are considering applying for admission to the academy after graduation.
Samuel Syjongtian, a student at St. Joseph High School in Metuchen will participate in the summer seminar program.
The seminar will teach prospective applicants about life at the Naval Academy, where academics, athletics and professional training play equally important roles in developing our nation’s leaders. Each student will attend a six-day session and experience a part of Academy life. They will live in Bancroft Hall, the dormitory used by all Academy midshipmen. They will eat in the dining hall, participate in academic and leadership workshops and experience a variety of other activities on the campus.
Each student will attend eight 90-minute workshops, covering subjects from information technology, naval architecture and mechanical engineering, to oceanography, mathematics, history and meteorology. They will also participate in seamanship and navigation classes and will take an actual cruise aboard a yard patrol craft to apply what they will learn in class.
Naval Academy students run the summer seminar with oversight by active duty Navy and Marine Corps officers.
