Sarah Fairbanks of Nisswa, a student at Brainerd High School, is participating in the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA) Summer Seminar program.
Summer Seminar teaches prospective applicants about life at the Naval Academy, where academics, athletics and professional training are key elements in developing our nation's leaders.
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.
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.
