Hello, I'm new to this forum. I was just accepted into the USNA Foundation program for 2008-2009 and have been struggling with a decision on what program to select. I have very little time to decide though. I can choose between these schools, but have been told Northwestern is probably not a good choice because it isn't a full-year program. Blair Academy, Blairstown, New Jersey Bridgton Academy, North Bridgton, Maine The Gunnery, Washington, Connecticut Greystone Prep School at Schreiner University, Kerrville, Texas Hargrave Military Academy, Chatham, Virginia The Hill School, Pottstown, Pennsylvania The Hun School of Princeton, Princeton, New Jersey Kent School, Kent, Connecticut The Kiski School, Saltsburg, Pennsylvania The Marion Military Institute, Marion, Alabama The Mercersburg Academy, Mercersburg, Pennsylvania New Mexico Military Institute, Roswell, New Mexico Northfield Mount Hermon School, Northfield, Massachusetts Northwestern Preparatory School, Crestline, California The Peddie School, Hightstown, New Jersey Portsmouth Abbey, Portsmouth, RI Salisbury School, Salisbury, Connecticut Valley Forge Military Junior College, Wayne, Pennsylvania Vermont Academy, Saxtons River, Vermont Western Reserve Academy, Hudson, Ohio Wyoming Seminary, Kingston, Pennsylvania I don't even know how to start to decide between these. Are one of these programs more popular than the others for past Foundation students? Is one of them academically more rigorous than the others? Are there any that offer more help (tutoring) to Foundation students with tough classes such as calculus and chemistry? Are there any that have better or worse stats than the others of students finishing and going on to USNA? I've been told 5% of Foundation students perform poorly and drop out of Foundation, so I'd want to be sure I go to a place that has all the support I could ever want so that I wouldn't end up in that 5%! I would love some advice.
