Alexandria Natalia Barrow, student at Bishop Ireton High School was one of 2,550 rising seniors invited to Naval Academy Summer
Seminar program this year. Summer Seminar is a 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. They will
experience first-hand what the Naval Academy has to offer through its exceptional 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 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.
