You may fall short in math. Can you take AP pre-calc, if that exists? How about your standardized test scores, how are they?

Your senior year schedule would only be a small part of your academic qualifications. Your GPA, overall strength of your schedule and performance on the ACT or SAT are important factors, as well as your intended college major. In addition, the NROTC board is looking for a well-rounded applicant. They are looking for the Scholar, Athlete, Leader. Your qualifications in each of these areas is important. If one area is a bit weak, it could be compensated for by extra qualifications in another area. Your performance on the officer interview is important as well. Taking all that into account though, no one can tell you if your qualifications are "good enough" to receive a scholarship. People can give general advice as to where you appear strong or where you could try to improve. Many well-qualified applicants will not receive a scholarship and you may see someone who receives a scholarship with qualifications you perceive as not as strong as your own. Just keep in mind there was something in that person's overall package that led the board to believe they were deserving of a scholarship and had excellent potential to be a naval officer.

How about a science class like chemistry, physics or biology? If you have all of these why not add the follow advanced class or AP version.

There’s only 3 core and 1 non core classes. You should fill it to 7-8 periods. Min 5 should be core classes. Maybe add language and economics. That should get you to 5 core. Weight lifting = PE to colleges.

I would add a science class. If not AP then Astronomy and or Anatomy and Physiology. They are actually very practical and useful classes and fun to learn.

Your current program is way too soft for a Senior. Most competitive Seniors take 4 APs. I would try to get into a non AP Calculus. Or Precalculus with Calculus combo class. You will need to prep Calculus before enrolling at Annapolis. Calculus is harder at USNA then at your high school.

It really depends upon which colleges you are applying, e.g., Princeton versus nearby state college. If taking a more rigorous course schedule would probably lower your GPA, don't change your class schedule. Study for your SAT/ACT, improve your GPA, work on your leadership roles and EC, prepare for your physical assessment, etc. Do all you can do to make yourself more marketable for the scholarship.

You should try to get some Calc, not just pre-Calc, on your record. Take it at a local community college, if necessary, over the summer. (Some community colleges also have intensive semesters during January, between the Autumn and the Spring semesters).

Regardless, you definitely need to show you can do Calculus.
