SEA Summer High School Programs

SEA offers unique summer high school programs for current high school students, including graduating seniors. Choose from a shore-based field program on our campus in Woods Hole, Massachusetts on beautiful Cape Cod, or an at-sea voyage aboard the SSV Corwith Cramer with a focus on oceanographic research under sail.

At SEA, there's an adventure with a purpose waiting for every student interested in exploring the marine environment through hands-on, experiential, and community-based learning!

SEA Quest

This summer, join a community of high school students from around the world who want to learn more about the sea, make a difference in ocean conservation, and prepare for college academics. The SEA Quest high school seminars are fun, inclusive, and engaging. We meet twice a day online for two weeks. Together we work with real marine science data, learn research methods, practice writing and illustration skills, discuss opportunities and strategies for activism, and learn and network in active, small groups with like-minded students who are thousands of miles away from you (while lightening our carbon footprint). In a small group setting, we meet and learn alongside active experts in their fields: marine scientists, science writers, environmental historians, and a captain from the US Coast Guard.  

SEA Expedition

This two-week summer program for high school students, including graduating seniors, is centered on learning by doing, SEA Expedition is a multidisciplinary experience that welcomes students to participate in every aspect of a challenging offshore sailing and oceanographic expedition, and occurs entirely aboard the SSV Corwith Cramer.

SEASCape: SEA Science on the Cape

This three-week summer program at SEA offers current high school students, including graduating seniors, the opportunity to study the marine environment from a variety of perspectives: scientific, historical, literary, and nautical. Participants live and study at our campus in Woods Hole, Massachusetts.
