Camps and K-12 Programs
The Academy hosts many camps and offers several pre-college programs that provide unique opportunities to students in grades K-12 with each program targeting a specific age range. Our pre-college programs help students to better understand Massachusetts Maritime Academy’s culture, a chance to experience what life is like as a cadet at the Academy, and the various opportunities that will be provided to them by enrolling. Students who participate in our programs explore STEM focused fields, develop confidence, create lasting friendships, and most importantly, set themselves up for future success!

SSLP will prepare participants for the college admissions process, build lifelong friendships, and educate participants on the career opportunities that Massachusetts Maritime Academy offers.
