As one of five service academies, the United States Naval Academy serves as a crucial institution of the American military. Its campus, which is located in Annapolis, Maryland, was established in 1845 and named a National Historic Landmark in 1961.
Of course, the Naval Academy is not your average undergraduate college. While other institutions focus exclusively on academics or career training, the Naval Academy strives to develop its students’ moral, academic, professional and physical education.
The admissions process is also quite different. A preliminary application makes you an official candidate, but you must also apply for nomination from a government official (typically a U.S. Representative, Senator, or the President or Vice President).
USNA’s academics consist of three main subject areas: Engineering & Weapons, Mathematics & Science, and Humanities & Social Science. There are over 20 majors available in practical fields like Computer Engineering, Quantitative Economics, and Arabic. Grades are based not just on academics, but also on leadership and athletic performance.
Like the other service academies, USNA provides full-tuition financial aid. Once you graduate, you’ll be commissioned as an officer in the Navy or Marine Corps. This is certainly no small commitment and obviously not for everyone, but the Naval Academy offers a top-notch, free education to those with the talent and drive to succeed.
