Our students received a waiver and will travel all expenses paid for by the United States
NASS offers three opportunities in June for incoming high school seniors to experience all aspects of midshipman life for six days at the Academy. Summer Sessions will take place from June 3-8, 10-15 and 17-22.
During each of the six-day sessions, students live in Bancroft Hall just like Academy midshipmen, eat in the dining hall, and participate in academic and leadership workshops, and experience a variety of other activities on the campus.
Students have an opportunity to see firsthand what the Academy has to offer through its academic, athletic, extracurricular activities and leadership training programs. In the programs focus on academics, participants attend workshops on a variety of topics including oceanography, physics, naval architecture and more.
The program gives high school students the opportunity to experience every aspect of the Naval Academy and its mission, which is to develop midshipmen mentally, morally and physically, said Don Nelson, director of NASS.
NASS is a competitive entry program. To be considered, applicants must be United States citizens, demonstrate superior academic
performance and achievement in athletics and extracurricular activities and be physically fit, among other prerequisites.
All NASS applicants are automatically processed as applicants to the Naval Academy upon completion of the Summer Seminar selection process. There is no need to submit an additional preliminary application. Due to limited space in the Summer Seminar Program, it is highly recommended students not selected for NASS continue pursuing admission to the Academy.
Summer Seminar is a great program, said Lt. Joseph M. Pasco, NASS officer in charge. Our candidates will be challenged not only from a physical standpoint, but a mental one as well. Summer Seminar will answer all the questions you have ever had about the Naval Academy.
Tuition for the Naval Academy Summer Session is approximately $300, which pays for room and board, as well as a variety of materials. Each student is responsible for arranging transportation to and from the Naval Academy.
