Since 1910, Army and Navy Academy has been consistently ranked as one of the top boarding schools for boys in California. The Academy is a college preparatory private school designed for how boys learn. Challenging academics are paired with unique learning and study supports that set boys up to achieve in the classroom. Inspiring coaches bring out the best in our athletes, while cultivating teamwork and personal health. All of this is supported by a JROTC leadership program that teaches boys to be their best selves and sets them up for success in life beyond high school. Find out why Army and Navy Academy is internationally recognized as one of the best military schools in the United States. We offer both boarding and day options.  


Teenage boys need motivation to succeed, so attending our military school for boys can be transformative. Army and Navy Academy ignites the drive to achieve through active learning, experimentation, and collaboration.

We know that success is contagious in middle school and high school, so we are continually working on ways to maximize this at our college prep private school. 

Our dedicated faculty and staff support boys’ college and career interests, both in and out of the classroom. In addition to providing a college preparatory education, cadets get a jump start on their career interests, including: aviation, computer science, video production, business and other fields.


We know that boys crave structure so we provide a highly organized daily schedule at our military academy. It can make all the difference between success and failure in middle school and high school. 

After classes end, cadets receive individualized academic attention through tutorials and study hall. They participate in elite sports teams and group fitness training. There’s also plenty of time for fun at our private beachfront and through extracurricular clubs, trips, and activities. 

Our faculty, coaches, and residential life staff mentor and guide boys to take the lead in their lives by setting and achieving goals. We invite boys to reimagine their futures.


Self-discipline at our boarding school for boys supports achievement in academics, athletics, leadership, and other aspects of life at Army and Navy Academy.

Taking on positions in the Corps of Cadets is a highly sought after privilege among students at the Academy. Senior leaders are expected to manage a rigorous academic schedule, perform on the athletic field, and take on a variety of responsibilities to ensure the smooth running of the Corps.

Cultivating self-discipline is about teaching cadets to be their best selves when no one else is watching.
