COVID-19 Health and Travel Updates

Based on the demographic dynamic of our Cadets, the uniqueness of a boarding school environment, and to protect our community and preserve our academic program, we have decided on a phased approach to the remainder of the second semester.  Army and Navy Academy has decided to close its campus classrooms and move to a remote learning model.  As this situation evolves, we will have a better idea of when in-person classes will resume.

Read the full letter and details of this decision from President, MG Arthur Bartell here.

Students and parents will be receiving follow up emails from the Academic Office, Counseling Office, and individual teachers in the coming days and weeks. Below is a list of Frequently Asked Questions to help answer some common questions Cadets and families might have.

What if I left books or school supplies that I need on campus?

No Cadets will be permitted on campus until further notice.  We know that many Cadets have left books on campus and teachers are preparing their courses accordingly.

If there are other items you must retrieve on campus please contact Operations at 760.547.5228

When will remote classes begin?

The first day of online classes will be Monday, March 23rd. Details on accessing course content will be provided the week of March 16th. Please allow us this time to prepare answers to any academic questions you may have. It is imperative that all Cadets are checking their emails on a consistent basis as this has been and will continue to be the main mode of communication. If your family is unable to accommodate a remote learning environment, please contact Malcolm Muter at

How will remote learning take place?

It is vital for all Cadets to be utilizing their emails for all academic communications. This is not only where they access emails, but also their Google Classrooms for each class, Google Hangouts, and other virtual learning tools. Online classes will officially begin on Monday, March 23rd. Cadets will be expected to stay current on all assignments, and parents/guardians are encouraged to check Google Classroom for information on all coursework and Aeries for current grades. Links to Google Classroom will be shared by each teacher next week. Our faculty will be updating grade books by 4 pm on Tuesdays and 11:30 am on Fridays. We realize that many Cadets left their textbooks on campus and teachers are planning accordingly to ensure digital resources are available through Google Classroom.

What about athletics?

All athletics are canceled until campus reopens. Athletic facilities are closed to all students, including user groups.

All Cadets should incorporate time into their day to exercise and stay healthy.

Is the Academy recommending that International Cadets go home or remain in the US?

At this time there are too many external factors effecting the situation to make a recommendation for international Cadets traveling home. If you have the resources available, it is our desire for international Cadets to remain in the United States. We anticipate there may be significant challenges returning to the US, to include a potential 14 day quarantine upon return.

What is the Academy doing to support Cadets emotionally?

The Army and Navy Academy is a unique, supportive community—distance will not change that. As always, Cadets should reach out to faculty, counselors, and the Dean if they find themselves needing extra support. Counselors from the Counseling Office will continue to support Cadets remotely as needed. Cadets can contact their individual counselors.
