U.S. NAVAL ACADEMY

Declared a National Historic Site in 1963, the Yard, as the campus is called, adjoins Annapolis, the colorful capital of Maryland. Settled in 1649, the city is not only a historic landmark in its own right but also a famed cultural and recreational center. The Naval Academy is almost equidistant from Washington, DC, and Baltimore, about 25 miles.

Founded in 1845, the Naval Academy is charged with preparing midshipmen for service as commissioned officers in the U.S. Navy or Marine Corps. Midshipmen pursue a demanding academic curriculum. They are imbued with the highest ideals of duty, honor, and loyalty, and are physically and mentally prepared for commissioned service. Women were admitted for the first time in 1976.

All graduates earn a Bachelor of Science degree. Degrees are awarded in Aerospace, Computer, Electrical, General, Mechanical, Ocean, Systems, and General Engineering; Naval Architecture, Arabic, Chinese, Chemistry, Computer Science, Information Technology, General Science, Economics, Quantitative Economics, English, History, Mathematics, Oceanography, Physics, and Political Science. Graduates receive commissions as Ensigns in the Navy or Second Lieutenants in the Marine Corps.

Tuition, room and board, and medical and dental care are provided by the U.S. government.

The Naval Academy’s faculty is composed of 590 members, with officers and civilians in approximately equal numbers (95 percent of the civilian faculty have Ph.D.s). The officers provide a continuing input of new ideas and experiences from the Fleet. The civilians provide a core of scholarship and teaching experience and lend continuity to the educational program.

Each year, approximately 1,200 men and women are selected for admission to the plebe (freshman) class at the Naval Academy. They come from every state in the Union and from families representing a wide variety of occupations and interests. Candidates must be at least 17 years of age and must not have reached their 23rd birthday by July 1 of the year of admission. Candidates must be single and have no dependent children, and women candidates must not be pregnant; all candidates must be U.S. citizens. The Admissions Board examines each candidate’s school records, SAT or ACT scores, recommendations from school officials, extracurricular activities, and other evidence of character, leadership potential, academic aptitude, health, and physical fitness.

The great majority of students accepted for admission come from the top 40 percent of their high school class. The SAT I or the ACT is required.

It is advisable to apply for admission during the spring of junior year in high school. For further information, visit
