NASS and STEM Update

  POSTED ON: Monday, April 13, 2020 12:01 PM by

After closely and carefully monitoring the outbreak and spread of the COVID-19 virus nationally, we have regretfully made the difficult decision to cancel our much-anticipated residential summer programs, Summer Seminar and STEM Camp, scheduled for late May and June 2020.  

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 who were selected to lead each program.  It was also necessary to cancel these programs in order for the U.S. Naval Academy to safely induct the Class of 2024 and conduct summer training for our current midshipmen, keeping them on track to become commissioned officers in the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps.

We are deeply disappointed, as many of you are, with this news. However, our Office of Admissions staff is working diligently to create new and additional outreach opportunities, including residential programs, as soon as it is safe to do so. We ask you to stay connected in the meantime through our Admissions website at and social media sites on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for updates. Additionally, our staff is available daily via live chat from the “Contact Us” chat widget on our Admissions website.

We all look forward to talking with you in the near future.  Please stay safe and healthy during this unprecedented time.
