    I've heard a lot of info about prep schools being mostly academic preparation. I'm not saying they don't do other things aside from academic, because I know they do. However, will academies appoint people to prep schools to develop, say, their athletic/fitness skills? Just a topic that has come up between me and my grandpa.

    A year or two ago, there was a young woman on this board (or possibly CollegeConfidential service academies board?) who said she was told the reason she was sent to NAPS was her physical fitness. You might search history to see if you can find her comments.

    NortherCalMother...that was my daughter. If anyone wants the details of her journey you can search her here and on the other board as well. She is Navy Clarinet. If anyone wants to message me privately with questions feel free.
