Admissions - High School Parents



During the shore component, students have access to phone, email and internet, and mail. They are welcome to bring and use cell phones while on campus. While at sea, however, although ship communications include high seas radio, satellite telephones, and limited email capability, student access to these tools is purposefully limited in order for them to experience full immersion. We are able to pass urgent messages to students via satellite phone and responses are usually available the next day. Alternately, a return call can be made from the ship directly to any place in the world. Calls directly to the ship may only be made from SEA Headquarters.

Parents may always access the ship’s position and student blogs on our Ship Position Report page, updated each weekday.
