The Naval Academy Preparatory School is the Navy’s fourth-oldest school; only the Naval Academy, Naval War College and Naval Postgraduate School are older.

The Naval Academy Preparatory School’s mission is to enhance midshipman candidates’ moral, mental and physical foundations to prepare them for success at the U.S. Naval Academy. The 10-month course of instruction at NAPS, from August through May, emphasizes preparation in English composition, mathematics, chemistry, physics and other academic subjects.

Demanding military, physical and character development programs complement the academic preparation to fully prepare students for the challenges they will face at the Naval Academy. As part of the physical development program, NAPS has a varsity athletic program that competes against other preparatory schools, junior colleges and college junior varsity teams throughout the Northeast.
