    Does anyone know anything about the Naval Academy STEM Program?
    Sounds like a prefect fit for my younger daughter.

    Think it's fairly new. We sponsor two sisters at USNA whose younger sister ('17!) emailed them she'd gotten into STEM, and the two current mids hadn't heard of it.
    Will be interesting to hear comments here.

    It's only for kids going into 7th, 8th and 9th grades.

    Does anyone know what STEM is?

    Okay, now we're getting somewhere. So STEM is for middle school students and high school freshmen. Does anyone know more specific info on this program? Thanks in advance.:smile:

    Sounds Like a great Program. Sent in the Applicatin for the 6TH grader. Thanks for the heads up. Didn't know that this was available. Current Mid will love to see her on the YARD.

    See This: Re STEM PROGRAM. Same direction as NavMom2008 just click on STEM Program on admiisions Page. I think this program started in Summer 2008 so it is fairly new to the Academy?

    Our uprising 8th grader applied. Her older brother will be a NASS squad leader, so it'd be great to have two of ours on the yard at the same time. Anxious to hear if anyone knows someone who gets in...keep us posted!

    My next is still a few years away so I would be very interested to hear more about the program once someone goes through it! If it is as good as it looks, I sure hope it sticks around! :thumb:
