With acquired life skills such as: independence, resiliency, responsibility, and a firm understanding of the principles and practices of leadership, we are proud to be invested in the education and training of tomorrow’s leaders.

“This is not a school. It’s an institution for life, success, cultural intelligence and relationships. The range of diversity of cadets allowed me to grow with others of all different backgrounds. I honestly use what I learned at Army Navy more in my everyday life than my college education.”
Success Plan for the College Application Process
The college application process has become increasingly complicated and stressful in the last several years as more and more students are applying. Therefore, it is imperative that high school juniors begin the initial college search process in the later part of their junior year and the summer before their senior year.
First, we recommend that Cadets create a list of schools they are interested in applying to:
- 3 Reach Schools – where your son’s GPA and test scores are slightly below the average for that school
- 3 Target Schools – where your son’s GPA and test scores are at the average for that school
- 3 Likely Schools – where your son’s GPA and test scores fall above the average for that school
The KEYS to successfully applying to colleges are organization and follow-through — to help Army and Navy Academy students in these key areas, we hold several workshops for both Cadets and Parents.
We always strive to guide your son through the college application process and in determining a best fit college and/or career.
