Where can I post a review?

Army and Navy Academy welcomes reviews from parents and cadets. We appreciate your open and honest feedback. If you have an unsatisfactory experience at the Academy, we’d love the opportunity to work with you on your concerns. Major sites where we are reviewed include:

How can I refer a prospective cadet to the Academy?

If you know a prospective cadet who would benefit from the Academy’s boy-focused environment, we welcome your referrals. The Academy is always looking to enroll cadets with strong values, academic achievement, and a desire to succeed in college and far beyond.

We thrive on your referrals. Current cadets, parents, and alumni who successfully refer a cadet resulting in a verified new enrollment will receive a $1,000 credit at the Academy store. Please contact the Office of Admission for details at 888.762.2338.

How do I get photos of my son?

Each week, the Weekly Warrior features photos of cadets across campus. The Academy’s photographer, Randel Berg, also takes photos of cadets at special events. They are available at his website

Army and Navy Academy opens its doors to patrons several times each semester for “closed weekends”, during which we host a variety of activities and events for parents. These include parades, parent-teacher-TAC conferences, concerts, dinners, and auctions. You can find out when these events are coming via our Special Events page.
