    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!

    Good for you that you are starting early on. To answer 95% of your questions, read the Naval Academy Catalog (which is online at their site) and the book "The Naval Academy Candidate Book: How to Prepare, How to Get In, and How to Survive" by Susan Ross. The Catalog should be read without going into the course descriptions---you don't need them now but you will need to know just about everything else. The book can be found on Amazon and plan on reading it, not once, but several times and be sure that you get the one by Ross. Good luck to you.
