Boarding School life on the Beach

Campus life as a boarding school student has a whole different feel at Army & Navy Academy. The beach is literally at your doorstep 24/7! Similar to a college setting, our 16-acre oceanview campus has everything you need for a fully integrated educational experience. After classes end, there is time to participate in sports and clubs, as well as time to unwind at the beach, hang out in the recreation hall, or take a walk into Carlsbad Village. In the evening, enjoy a chef-inspired dinner, mandatory study time, and boarding school dorm meetings. During the weekend, choose from a variety of activities both on or off campus such as: surfing, swimming, tennis, shopping, movies, and excursions in San Diego, Orange County, and Los Angeles. It is a whole new adventure every day!

Boarding School Life – Become More Independent and Resilient

Living away from home can be fun and exciting on our beachfront campus in Carlsbad, California! An education and campus life experience at an all boys military boarding school is a chance to become more responsible and independent, as well as forge strong friendships.

If you are a boarding school student, you will share a room with someone from another town, state, or perhaps even a different country. If you are a day student, you will enjoy similar exposure, but you will go home after athletics.  

Modeling the best practices from the highly selective service academies, our West Point style military academy will show you how to be a leader, team player, and a good friend. You will learn how to adhere to a structured daily schedule, take care of your personal hygiene, clean your room, make your bed to specific standards, and communicate effectively with others. 

Boarding School Life – Mentorship and Guidance Help You Aim High

You will receive mentorship and guidance during all aspects of boarding school life. The faculty, staff, and coaches are here for you! 

After classes end, your TAC officer will help you seek out academic support, as well as get involved with sports, clubs, and weekend activities.. TACs (Trainer, Advisor, Coach) will mentor and guide you in all aspects of boarding school life as you set goals for academics, leadership, character development, and athletics. Through their guidance, you will see your motivation and habits improve in the following areas: nutrition, sleep, appearance, hygiene, physical fitness, mental fitness, value system, leadership skills, and communication. You will acquire a growth mindset and learn how to overcome limiting thoughts and behaviors.  

The faculty will ignite your passion for learning, counselors will provide support, coaches will take you to you to peak physical fitness, and your TAC officer will help you become the best version of yourself. Step up to the challenge at Army and Navy and enjoy boarding school life at the beach!
