    I understand that I have to get my 11th grade teachers from my english and math classes to write them but seeing as I plan to major in Chemistry would I be able to have my science teacher from 11th grade to write me one also?

    Teachers can always write one and you can always submit the recommendation to USNA, no one is going stop you.
    BUT the two recommendations that are required and given the greatest weight are English and Math, period.

    IMHO extra recommendations won't substantially benefit your package (supplemental recommendations 99% of the time will be favorable reports) unless you have accomplished something extremely unique that you feel needs greater explanation.
