    am so thrilled my sons have this experience in the formative years of their life and character. It has been no easy task and a collection of miracles and painful sacrifices...
    I can honestly say EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE when you
    1- make a decision
    2- have complete faith about the outcome
    3- take selfless and inspired action

    The universe will conspire to manifest your selfless desires.

    Both of my boys have grown exponentially in all areas... academically, personally, physically, emotionally! The Army and Navy Academy team of folks have done a superb job at answering their call! I could not be happier to endorse them.

    I've sent the last 6 years at Army and Navy Academy. It's an all-boys military school lasting from grades 7-12. I started in 7th grade back in 2014 and I'm graduating this year (2020). It's a wonderful campus, the staff are nice and take the time to actually know who you are, unlike other public or private schools. The teachers stay late and spend their free time to make sure you understand the subject, I remember my AP Biology teacher coming to school ON HER WEEKEND to make sure we were prepared for the AP Exam. The downsides, it does have a military school name; so it's more than likely each "plebe class" is going to have a few bad kids. Another thing is being away from home. You get used to it though. I wouldn't be the person I am today without ANA, I pretty much consider it my home away from home.
    My son went here for one year. The academics are average at best, about on par with public schools that I've seen. There are a large number of ESL students, so that could be a reason the school can't have a more rigorous curriculum. The daily cadet life is very lax, which shocked me because it is a military school. There are a lot of rules, but they are only sporadically enforced. The cadets have a tremendous amount of unsupervised free time. If your son is self-motivated and an excellent time manager, he will likely do well. If he needs some prodding here and there to stay on track, he will go off track quickly because there is very little oversight. Another big negative is the drug use, which is HUGE. Whenever I would talk to the administration about drugs, they would always claim "drugs are everywhere," and "we don't have a bigger drug problem than other schools." I strongly disagree! Drug use is much more common among students at this school than any other high school I’ve seen.
