For over 100 years, Massachusetts Maritime Academy has been preparing women and men for exciting and rewarding careers on land and sea. As the nation's finest co-ed maritime college, MMA challenges students to succeed by balancing a unique regimented lifestyle with a typical four-year college environment. As a member of the cadet corps you will live, study, sail, work and play in an atmosphere that encourages you to be your best.
On June 11, 1891 the Massachusetts Legislature passed the act establishing the Massachusetts Nautical Training School. Three campuses, eight ships and nearly 12,000 alumni later, that school is your Massachusetts Maritime Academy! To honor all of that history and celebrate our success, the TS Kennedy steamed to Boston this past June 11th to host a sunset reception where we re-enacted the signing of that historic legislation. Joining us for the special event were Lt. Governor Karyn Polito, Senate President Stanley C. Rosenberg and Speaker of the House, Robert A. DeLeo.
