Teenage boys in middle school and high school need motivation to succeed, so attending our school can be transformative. Army and Navy Academy ignites students’ drive to achieve through active learning, experimentation, and collaboration.

We know that success is contagious and we maximize this at our college prep day and boarding school built for boys in grades 7-12. 

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 at Army and Navy Academy can get a jump start on their career interests, including aviation, computer science, video production, and other unique programs.


As an all-boys military school, we know that a highly organized daily schedule can make 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 military 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 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.
