Summer Programs

The United States Naval Academy Office of Admissions continues to monitor the ongoing circumstances surrounding COVID-19. In looking forward to our programming for June 2021, we plan to host  traditional experiences for both Summer Seminar and Summer STEM, providing students with an on-campus experience and a glimpse of life at the Naval Academy.  The applications are open at U.S. Naval Academy Summer Programs Applications. Program fees are $650.00 for Summer Seminar and $900.00 for Summer STEM. Keep in mind, as always, need-based scholarships are available for both the program fee and travel.

Our intent in conducting both Summer Seminar and STEM Camp next summer is to provide a safe, Coronavirus (COVID-19)-free environment for all attendees as well as the faculty, staff and midshipmen who will be conducting both programs.  While USNA remains a low-risk area for the COVID-19, we are continuing to assess this dynamic and evolving situation closely to prepare for any contingency.  When we are assured that we have established sound protocols that reflect the most current CDC, Federal, and State guidelines we will communicate them, and in a timely manner to allow parents and attendees to make informed, safe decisions concerning both programs. 

We appreciate the continued patience as we monitor this ongoing situation in the coming months. For now, we encourage students to check out the details at USNA Summer Programs and look to apply online. The applications for both Summer Seminar and Summer STEM are free and are open. Applications close on March 31, 2021. 

In the meantime, stay connected through our Admissions website at and social media sites on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for updates.  Additionally, our staff is available daily, Monday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. EST and 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. EST via live chat from the “Contact Us” chat widget on our Admissions website.

Please stay safe during this unprecedented time.
