College Matriculation

Army and Navy Academy is a private college prep school that aligns its core curriculum with University of California standards. This nationally recognized set of requirements prepares Academy graduates for placement at top universities across the nation. As a prep school, our objective is to support and prepare students to gain admission to a university, college, or a military service academy of their choice. Our graduates matriculate to top universities including: Stanford, Cornell, Columbia, NYU, Georgetown, University of Chicago, UCLA, UCSD, UCSB, UCI, UC Davis, UC Berkeley, and United States Military Academy at West Point. 

Graduates Matriculate to The Ivy League, Top Universities, and Service Academies

Army and Navy Academy helps boys take the lead in their lives and college matriculation seriously. Our unique approach helps boys set goals, structure their time, follow their moral compass, live independently, and forge lasting friendships.

We encourage our students to develop professional interests through classes, clubs, and co-curricular activities.
