Hi everyone- Please excuse me for my lack of knowledge regarding admissions, but I am a freshman in high school and have had a long-term goal of attending the naval academy. It's always been a dream of mine, and now as my first year of high school is soon coming to a close, I want to make sure that I am aware of what I should be doing throughout these next three years. First off, let me tell you a little bit about myself. I'm 15 years old, I'm from Massachusetts, and I go to a private, catholic high school. I'm the vice president of my student council, and I participate in peer ministry, S.A.D.D, Project Unite, as well as soccer, track, and tennis. I'm an A student and am strong in math and science. I would say that I've had an excellent first year, but I feel very uneducated as to the admissions process of the academy and when I should start contacting people. Would somebody like to tell me what I should be doing these next few years to hopefully fulfill my dream? Thank you, and sorry for my lack of knowledge on the whole process!
