U.S. Naval Academy

The U.S. Naval academy is a four year federal service academy that offers the select few who are admitted an excellent education for free, in exchange for service to the country after graduation. The Naval Academy is routinely among the best public liberal arts colleges, and is subsequently highly selective. Students must have top academic credentials, a nomination from a member of Congress, the Vice-President or the President and must be medically cleared and physically fit. Once admitted, students become Midshipmen and adhere to the strict moral and ethical standards of the U.S. Navy. The midshipmen command structure is complex and accountable, reflecting the discipline and order that students can expect in their years of service following graduation. Students form close bonds and lasting relationships as they take challenging courses, routine physical examinations and military training exercises together.
