The Army and Navy Academy is a boarding school for boys dedicated to preparing its students for their future with discipline and a carefully planned college preparatory curriculum. The curriculum is based on the entrance requirements put forth by the University of California. Along with their rigorous coursework the Academy offers a variety of extra curricular activities such as, a JROTC leadership program, an athletic program and a residential life program.
Students at the Academy are encouraged to get involved in community service and extra curricular activities. In addition to classes there is a focus on a meticulous daily schedule. Although the military infrastructure is used to teach students the discipline, stamina and self motivation needed to succeed, military service is not a requirement after graduation.
