Start early in your high school years by taking classes that would include Chemistry, Physics, advanced Math, English and computers.

You can go to www.usna.edu and locate the steps needed to complete the application process. IF you are past your sophmore year in high school you need to start now.

Acceptance to any of the five federal service academies is a remarkable accomplishment. Individuals who are seriously interested in competing for a nomination should seek guidance from an individual who has been involved in the admissions process recently. In 2002 I was accepted to all five federal …service academies (USNA, USAFA, USMA, USMMA, USCGA). If you are serious about being a cadet or midshipman I encourage you to immediately seek the advice of someone willing to evaluate your extra-curricular and academic record to provide you guidance geared toward your particular situation.. It is very competitive to gain entrance into any of the service academies, whether you apply to West Point(Army), Annapolis(Navy & Marine Corps), the Air Force Academy, the Coast Guard Academy in New London, Ct or even the Merchant Marine Academy.. You will need to be in the upper levels of your graduating class, have taken a number of science, math and computer courses, been active in extra-curricular activites or sports. A good background to have is English, Algebra, Trigonometry, Calculus, Chemistry and Physics and computers. If you have a good academic base then you should do well. Realistically speaking, you should start applying during the early part of your junior year in high school. You will need a nomination from either your US Congressman or US Senators. The sooner you start the better your chances. An application would need to be filled out and submitted to the Naval Academy. You can get a better idea of the application process by going to www.usna.edu where you will see a list of steps to take as far as applying.. Keep one thing in mind, if you do not succeed your first time around, you can still apply for the class following your original target class. There is also the Academy Prep School option as well which would be for people without strong academic backgrounds. You would spend a year in Newport, RI where you would be sent through a regimen similar to what a Plebe(freshman) at the Naval Academy would face. This would enhance your chances of admission greatly and also qualify you for a Secretary of the Navy nomination should you pass this course of instruction. Also ask if there is a Blue and Gold officer in your area as they can give you more personalized assistance into gaining admission. Good luck if you do decide to apply. It will be a most unique experience. ( Full Answer )
IF you really want to get into the Academy then you will need a nomination. The first source to contact about this would be your Congressman and then your US Senators. It is not too soon to start this process especially if you are a junior in high school. You will need to get an application packet w…hich you can request from :. www.usna.edu online.. IF you are a senior you are a little late for this as applications were due as of Jan 31 of each year. If you are a senior don't give up. There is also the Naval Academy Prep school which will allow you a chance to try again for the following class and give you an additional nomination source. You would enlist in the Navy for the express purpose of attending the Prep School. If you change your mind, you are allowed to resign and return to civilian life(I had to take this route myself). As a member of the military you would also qualify for a Secretary of the Navy nomination should you pass the course. ( Full Answer )

Academy graduates become Commissioned Officers, not enlisted sailors. Though there is a similar contract, an officer can resign a commission, while an enlisted sailor cannot quit. Also, an enlistment is a signed contract between the sailor and the Navy; a commission is given by Congress. The agre…ement that is signed by a midshipman (whether at the Academy or through NROTC) says they will serve in the US Navy for six years in exchange for the education. If the individual does not meet the requirements for a commission, due to poor grades, poor leadership or other reasons, they can be enlisted to serve the 6 years. Typically there is a 4 year active duty requirement and that the remaining is done in the reserves. ( Full Answer )

The "anchorman" is the Midshipman in each graduating class who finishes dead last in the class, ranked by "order of merit," which is determined by a weighted computation of academic performance (65 percent), military performance (17.7 percent), athletic performance (10 percent) and conduct (7.8 perc…ent). Though considered an honor (albeit a dubious one), getting there isn't easy - one needs to finish with low marks in everything without getting expelled, and those who go to Annapolis are typically the best students and athletic performers from around the country. One tradition is a monetary one - the each member of the graduating class places a dollar or more into the anchorman's cover (hat) as it is passed around, which adds up to nice bundle of cash.
