My son is planning to apply to USNA and CGA for c/o 2020. I've read about the types of characteristics that the academies are looking for. What I'm less clear on is what form the documentation would look like. For example, the CGA faq page recommends a comprehensive curriculum guide be submitted along with the academic transcript. I'm not sure what the "curriculum guide" would contain. Would this mainly be a set of course descriptions? Are they looking for an overview document that would be similar to a school profile from a public/private school? My son has good SAT scores, a couple of strong AP results, community college dual enrollment, a sport and scout leadership. I think that he is competitive, but realize how tough the competition is. I don't want a lack of adequate documentation of what he's done to be a stumbling block. He is making lists of instructors and other adults he can use for letters of recommendation. Does anyone have insight into presenting this type of academic documentation outside a traditional school? It is daunting to now take on the mantle of guidance counselor.
