United States Naval Academy

Address: 121 Blake Road, Annapolis, Maryland, United States

The United States Naval Academy at Annapolis has a long and storied history. It was established in 1845 by the order of George Bancroft, then Secretary of the Navy. Graduates from the academy have helped drive the United States Navy to prominence and success. The United States Navy is larger than the navies of the next 13 nations combined, and serves to promote peace and advance the interests of the United States throughout the world. Most of the officers for this important branch of the military receive their training at Annapolis.

Students at the academy undergo four years of training that focuses on moral education, academic and professional education, and on the physical fitness required of an active duty navy serviceman. The naval academy strives to instill the responsibility, integrity, and respect in its graduates. These moral values are coupled with a demanding academic curriculum and year round physical training to produce graduates who are capable of becoming leaders in America’s Navy.

The application process is demanding, and only the best candidates are accepted for training, making the United States Naval Academy one of the most respected military training academies in the world.
