Daily Schedule at Army and Navy Academy

Boys crave structure, hierarchy, and order, and if you think otherwise, watch them play — they set boundaries, play positions, and they move as a team. They run plays, they know their assignment and they know how to help.

Structure does not strip them of creativity, it creates unity and bonding, so boys are naturally drawn toward it.

A daily bulletin is read to Cadets each day during first period. It is also posted online in the ANA Families section of the website.

A typical day for Boarding Cadets at Army and Navy Academy begins at 0615 hrs — cadets clean their rooms for inspection, take morning attendance, have breakfast, and prepare for class.

Boarding Cadets and Day Cadets alike both enjoy these same advantages of ANA:

  • Individualized teacher support after school
  • Academic counseling to keep homework on track
  • Leadership opportunities
  • Involvement in the athletic program
  • College counseling to prepare for the SAT and complete college applications

The Army and Navy Academy is a place for developing human excellence in young men so that they not only do well in their endeavors, they live well in their lives. Learning how to live, work, and team up with others cultivates close ties, positive communications, and requires young men to look within at their values and take responsibility for their actions.

Why ANA?

Army and Navy Academy believes in boys, and we are fully committed to how they learn, grow and thrive.
