The Alumni Association of the Nautical College of Akko

Purposes of the Association

The Association’s basic purpose is to establish continued solidarity between all generations of our alumni: solidarity among the alumni themselves, between the alumni and the College’s current student body, and between the alumni and the College’s former staff and students.


Our most important goals are to preserve the values of friendship and leadership that were imparted to the alumni during the years of their training.


Additional goals are to cultivate a seamanship tradition and promote leadership by seamen by encouraging maritime education in Israel and increasing service in the navy and the merchant navy. Family members of alumni are also welcome to join the Association.


The Association has several honorary members including past and present Israeli naval commanders, past and present school principals, and other public figures.
