As a private military school with a JROTC program, Army and Navy Academy educates with a set of core values inside and outside of the classroom.
With over 100 years of single-gender military school experience, the Army and Navy Academy is an internationally recognized college prep boarding and day school for boys. A military school education offers a challenging college-prep curriculum, combined with character and leadership development programs.
Honesty • Integrity • Respect • Responsibility • Compassion • Gratitude
Historically, JROTC programs were designed to prepare students for the military. This is no longer the case. Today, JROTC education “prepares students for responsible future leadership roles, while making them aware of individual rights, responsibilities, and privileges as American citizens.”
Emphasis is placed on personal responsibility, which in turn leads to community awareness and civic engagement. JROTC truly provides a life skills curriculum. Research has shown that military school JROTC programs have proven to be exceptionally effective in developing resilience, independence, confidence, motivation, and self-discipline.
Military school taught me the important ingredients for success – how to lead and be confident in everything that I do.
