Applying to SEA High School Programs

High School Eligibility

SEA welcomes applications from current high school students, including graduating seniors, who have successfully completed at least one high school level science and one high school level mathematics course, and have an interest in understanding the ocean and environmental issues from a variety of perspectives. Rising freshmen will be considered for the virtual programs only. We review each application carefully, with an emphasis on student interest, motivation, and goals for the selected program.

Each SEA high school program has a limited capacity with a maximum of 20- 25 students. We accept summer applications beginning in the preceding fall and encourage students to apply early since some programs may fill before the stated deadline.

Application Deadlines

  • Application Deadline 1: January 15
