Wednesday, October 10, 2018 is Naval Academy Day 2018. Induction Day at Naval Academy a stressful blur of commands ... Induction Day at Naval Academy
The U.S. Naval Academy is a primary source of officers for the U.S. Navy. When you graduate from the Academy, you are commissioned as an Ensign in the Navy and then begin your formal Naval service. Entry into the Academy is extremely competitive. Classes to take in high school? Math through AP Calculus, chemistry and physics, four years of English, at least two years of foreign language and two years of history. You also need very good ACT/SAT scores; you should shoot for a combined SAT Math/Verbal of about 1300. Besides that you must hold leadership positions in student organizations, or Scouts, or other significant activities outside of school. You also need to participate in varsity athletics, earning a letter and ideally serving as a team captain.
You'll find all of the details to apply to the Naval Academy in the link below. You can submit your application April first of your junior year for the class entering in the summer after you graduation year. Once you'll get started you'll find it's a very complex process and it will probably take you a couple of months to just to assemble everything. You will need a nomination from your Congressman or U.S. Senator; in nearly every instance these days getting a nomination is a competitive process where you compete from other potential candidates among their constituency. Generally each Congressman and Senator nominates 10 candidates for 1 appointment. Although it's rare, sometimes as many as five of the nominees actually are appointed: one as the primary and four as qualified alternates. Because there is a politician involved, people think that this is a political process, but in reality it generally is depoliticized and is instead competitive. If you are a top candidate you may also receive a Vice Presidential nomination, which actually is selected by the USNA Admissions Board; make sure you apply for it. You can actually submit this application March first. For the class of 2015, 19,145 people applied, 5,385 were nominated and 1,426 were offered appointments, so if you are really competitive it will pay for you to apply as early as possible as it increases your chances.
The college experience at the Naval Academy is quite different from all colleges in the U.S., except for the other Federal Service Academies. You wear a uniform and are under military discipline all the time. Your time is tightly programmed and you will take more hours of classes each term than any of your civilian buddies. You will participate in mandatory athletics each afternoon and march in two competitive parades every week in the fall and spring. You will hate it, and at the same time time, you will love it. You will make friends for life with some of the finest young men and women in the world, have the opportunity to serve your country, and to see the world.
You really should download and read all of the sections of the catalog from the link below. Good luck!
Does anyone know if the Air Force Academy or Naval Academy has post day?
the Naval Academy did have back in my day ( and I believe they still do have it) Service Selection Night in which the seniors go and pick what they will do for their time in the service. It was done by class rank then and still should be done that way.
Would I make it into Naval Academy or Navy Rotc through USC, UCSD or UofA.?
The Naval Academy recruits for its rifle team:
Approximately one third of each Naval Academy freshman class are members of varsity athletic teams and most were athletic recruits. Eagle Scout is considered significant leadership by all the service academies. Sophomores are eligible for NHS membership under national rules. The period to apply is at the very beginning of the semester. If you are not recruit caliber in track and field or rifle, it would be a good idea to go out for a competitive team sport during the Fall or Winter. The UC's do not count freshman year grades when recalculating the A-G Gpa used for admission purposes, so not only UCSD but also Berkeley and UCLA are possible if you step up your academics starting this fall. Most colleges discount freshman year and place the greatest weight on the highest level in a course. Most colleges only consider grades through junior year but a few including the ivy leagues consider grades through the first semester of senior year and place the highest weight on these grades at least for students who did not apply early action/decision. For colleges that require them decide what Sat Subject exams you are going to take and schedule the exams to coincide with the AP or Final exam in the course. You should presently be prepping for the Psat and also the Sat if you have completed Algebra 2. The Psat Math section tests Algebra 1 and Geometry. The Sat Math section adds Algebra 2. The Act Math section adds Algebra 2 and Trigonometry. Extracurricular reading looking up unknown words in a dictionary will help with Cr scores.
Even as little as twenty minutes a day will ,make a difference over time. Try and take an Act that offers TIR. Only two or three a year do.
The 75th percentile Sat scores at Usna for the Class of 2015 were significantly higher than previous classes. Cr-720, Math-730. That is around the minimum range to be considered for an Loa(letter of assurance) based on academic achievement as opposed to an Loa based on athletic achievement or diversity.
Class of 2015:
Class of 2014:
You will need scores from one of these exams to apply for the Naval Academy Summer Seminar when it opens for applications from HS Juniors on Feb 1 1(accepts 2250.) West Point SLS in mid December(accepts 1,000) and Usafa Summer Seminar on Dec 1(accepts 1125), Coast Guard AIM in February, and Sat or Act scores are also needed to apply for Rotc, Afrotc and Nrotc Scholarships when they open for applications from high school juniors in the Spring of 2012. At 1:21 Colonel Batchelder describes what the academies look for when considering applications for SLS/Summer Seminar:
The selection process is nearly identical at the Naval Academy, West Point, and the Air Force Academy, so, whatever is stated on one service academy website or in its catalog with regard to admissions, course selection etc generally holds for the others. If you read the following answer and open the links it should help to explain the selection process and the path to an appointment:
The Air Force Academy website offers outstanding advice to students prepping for a service academy, rotc scholarship or any highly selective university. Open all links to the left of the dialog box. Be sure to open the "Leadership Preparation" link and read it carefully."
