This is a high cost of living area, primarily due to the high cost of housing. The history of this lovely town dates back to the beginnings of our nation and it is a beautiful setting for the Academy. The Annapolis Area Naval Complex is composed of the U.S. Naval Academy, Naval Support Activity Annapolis, and other tenant commands.
The USNA current curriculum consists of four consecutive years at Annapolis with at-sea training during the summer. Eighteen academic majors are offered which lead to a Bachelor of Science degree for all graduates. The base operator's phone number is 410-293-1000 or DSN 312-281-1000.
