SEA High School Summer Seminars: Sea Education Association offers three unique 3-week programs designed to give high school students a hands-on introduction to the field of marine science while encouraging them to develop a greater understanding of and appreciation for our oceans. Class sizes are limited so apply early! SEA operates on a rolling admissions basis and admits qualified students as space is available. SEA will conduct application reviews on the first of each month between December 1 and April 1, and on a rolling basis thereafter. Space availability is posted on each program's webpage.
Science at SEA
Woods Hole, Massachusetts & at Sea
SAS is a 17-day program for high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors focusing on the coastal and offshore marine environment around Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The program includes a shore component on the SEA campus in Woods Hole, MA, and a sea component aboard one of SEA’s sailing research vessels, the SSV Corwith Cramer. During the shore component, students study the marine environment from a variety of perspectives: scientific, historical, literary, and nautical. This is an academic program complete with written assignments and tests. During the sea component, students study offshore oceanography, nautical science, and act as members of the ship’s crew. Students are evaluated on achievement and effort. More detailed information on SAS may be found at http://www.sea.edu/academics/sas.
Oceanography of the Gulf of Maine
Appledore Island, Maine & at Sea
OGM is an 18-day program open to rising high school juniors, seniors, and college freshmen who have successfully completed two high school science courses. SEA and Cornell University’s Shoals Marine Lab have partnered to offer this course focused on the marine environments of the Gulf of Maine. The program includes a shore component at Shoals Marine Lab on Appledore Island, Maine, and a sea component aboard one of SEA’s sailing research vessels, the SSV Corwith Cramer. During the shore component, students study near-shore coastal ecology and oceanography specific to the region. During the sea component, students study offshore oceanography, nautical science, and act as members of the ship’s crew.

The program includes a shore component at the University of Southern California's Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies, and a sea component aboard one of SEA's sailing research vessels, the SSV Robert C. Seamans. During the initial sea component, students study offshore oceanography, nautical science, and act as members of the ship's crew. The subsequent shore component at Wrigley allows students to study near-shore marine biology and ecology specific to the region.
