Sea, Science and Leadership Program (SSLP)


July 22-26, 2024


The mission of the Sea, Science, and Leadership Program (SSLP) at Massachusetts Maritime Academy is to provide high school students with interactive, educational workshops that build confidence, challenge decision-making skills and develop lifelong leadership qualities. SSLP will immerse participants in the educational and regimental lifestyle of a cadet through hands-on workshops that include the use of the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Ship's Bridge simulator, the Clean Harbors Emergency Operations Center, multiple engineering labs, fire fighting, and more. SSLP will prepare participants for the college admissions process, build lifelong friendships, and educate participants on the career opportunities that Massachusetts Maritime Academy offers.

The 2024 SSLP registration fee of $595.00 includes a four night stay on campus, all meals, and activities.  Register before May 1, 2024 to receive a $100 discount!
