I’m hoping to gain some knowledge on how my daughter can explore the possibility of attending USNA. She’s a 9th grader and has been talking about going to USNA for the past couple of years. What would be the best way for her to experience or gain insight into what attending a military academy is like? She’s very bright, a great athlete, competitive, and a wonderful patriot, however, I have concerns about sending my daughter, whether USNA is a viable option, etc. I’d be exceedingly proud for her to serve her country, but nervous as hell because she’s a female and my only child. I should add that she is registered to attend Naval crew camp this summer!
