About Army and Navy Academy

Educating Tomorrow's Leaders

Confident, independent, and resilient are just some of the words that describe the Army and Navy Academy Cadet.

Located on the coast in San Diego County, California, Army and Navy Academy is truly unique. Our college preparatory curriculum is catered to the ways that boys learn best. Interactive lessons, small class sizes, personal attention, and formal leadership training motivate each Cadet to reach his full potential.

This combination – leadership education, a college-prep curriculum, and the commitment to teaching in the ways that boys learn best – all adds up to create The Warrior Experience.

As a private military school with a JROTC program, Cadets are educated to a set of core values that shape all aspects of life. Honesty, integrity, respect, responsibility, and compassion are the cornerstones.
