ARMY AND NAVY ACADEMY PATRONS ASSOCIATION (ANAPA)
Every Army and Navy Academy patron is automatically a member of the Patrons Association, commonly referred to as ANAPA. We encourage all parents to remain involved in their cadet’s life here at the Academy through the many events that ANAPA hosts throughout the year. The Association strives to provide key insights to the parent community and support the Cadets and the administration for various Academy funds and events.
All parents with a Facebook account are encouraged to join the ANAPA Facebook Group.

CADET PACKING LIST
On your designated move-in day, your cadet will receive an initial issue of uniform items and other essentials to get them settled for their first few days at the Academy. He will change into uniform PT (physical training) gear upon receiving his room assignment. Once your cadet has access to his room, civilian attire is no longer authorized for wear on campus. We recommend that parents take all civilian clothing home at that time. Your cadet will receive a second full uniform issue at a later date that includes all required clothing and books.
Please ensure that your cadet arrives with the following items:
|Bath towels (white, marked with name and cadet ID #)||3-4|
|Underwear (color and style your preference)||9|
|White crew neck t-shirts||6|
|Shower shoes (flip-flop style)||1|
|White plastic clothes hangers||20|
|Water bottle (reusable, marked with name and cadet ID #)||1|
|Extra blanket (twin size, evenings are chilly Nov-Feb)||1|
|USB Flash Drive||2|
|Wrist Watch (inexpensive)||1|
|School supplies (pens, pencils, binders, notebooks)||Optional|
|Toiletry items (soap, shampoo, deodorant, oral hygiene items)|
Your cadet will receive an issue of bed sheets and a pillow upon arrival and these do not need to be packed.
Prohibited Items: electric blankets, weapons of any kind, skateboards, expensive jewelry, small kitchen appliances including hot pots, dietary supplements (protein powder, creatine, preworkout, etc.)
Army and Navy Academy does not carry insurance on the property of cadets and accepts no liability for lost, damaged, or stolen personal property.
Cadets will be issued a Chromebook during uniform issue. These Chromebooks have been pre-provisioned by the Information Technology department with a suite of monitoring and educational tools. Teachers will typically only allow Academy-issued Chromebooks for use in classes, and the Academy requires each cadet to own an issued Chromebook irrespective of whether they have any pre-existing digital devices.
In cases where a Chromebook incurs minor damage, the IT department may be able to repair or replace the device at no additional cost to parents. When a Chromebook has been deemed a total loss, either through destruction or loss, your cadet will be required to purchase a new Academy-issued Chromebook from the Bookstore.
