Statement Regarding USNA Summer Programs 2021

After closely and carefully monitoring the spread of the COVID-19 virus nationally, we have made the decision to host the 2021 Summer Seminar and Summer STEM Camp virtually.  This decision was made in order to protect the health and welfare of our summer program attendees, as well as our midshipmen, faculty and staff for each program. It is also necessary to move these programs to a virtual format for 2021 in order to enable the Naval Academy to safely prepare for the induction of the incoming Class of 2025.

We are excited to offer enhanced programming built upon the virtual experience of 2020’s Summer Seminar and STEM Camp. This year, STEM Camp participants will receive USNA STEM kits to support engagement during the academic modules. Additionally, participants for both programs will receive USNA apparel and promotional items specific to their program.

Keep in mind the applications for both programs remain open until March 31, 2021. We will begin sending selection notifications via email on a rolling basis. Our intent is to notify all applicants of their status before the end of April 2021.
