Pine-Richland Student Invited to U.S. Naval Academy Summer Seminar

Kelly Rodgers is one of 2,550 students to be accepted to program.

A Pine-Richland student is among a select group of students invited to attend the U.S. Naval Academy Summer Seminar program.

Kelly Rodgers is one of about 2,550 students from around the nation and abroad invited to attend the program at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD.

Rodgers is a cadet in the AFJROTC program at Pine-Richland High School. 

Summer Seminar is a fast-paced leadership experience for rising seniors in high school. This program helps educate, motivate and prepare selected students who are considering applying for admission to USNA. 

Summer Seminar teaches prospective applicants about life at the Naval Academy. Each student will attend a six-day session and experience a glimpse of USNA life. Students will have the opportunity to live in Bancroft Hall, eat in King Hall along with participating in academic and leadership workshops.

They will also participate in daily physical training involving group runs and conditioning exercises. They will experience first-hand what the Naval Academy has to offer through its academic, athletic, extracurricular activities and leadership training programs.

Summer Seminar has an academic focus, with each student attending eight 90-minute workshops, covering subjects from information technology, naval architecture and mechanical engineering, to oceanography, mathematics, history and meteorology.

Students will also participate in seamanship and navigation classes and will take a cruise aboard a Navy Yard Patrol (YP) Craft to apply what they will learn in class.

Naval Academy Midshipmen lead Summer Seminar with oversight by active-duty Navy and Marine Corps officers.

I attended the Summer Seminar as a high school student (many years ago). It was a great experience and I am certain she'll enjoy it!
