Does anyone know more about the selection process for NAPS and the Naval Academy Foundation Schools? I know you are automatically considered based on your Academy application as long as you say yes when your BGO asks, but I was wondering if they take certain things into account. My main concern is that according to the online information, NAPS classes only go up to a certain level. The English course is a basic Composition and Rhetoric class; the math options only go up to Calculus 2; and the physics/chemistry options are relatively basic. The only one of these classes that I think would be new material for me is the chemistry. I've already taken (through dual credit) college sophomore level English, Calculus 1 and 2, and a lower level college Physical Science course, though that's been less rigorous than my high school Physics (I probably have the best science teacher in the state). On a side note, I would like to continue rowing, but that doesn't seem to be an option at NAPS. So if I don't get into the Academy directly (unlikely with only a third alternate nomination) I think the Foundation schools would be a better option. One of them is connected to a four-year university, and I could take proper high-level classes there, as well as either row for the school (if they have crew) or find a club in the area and maybe swim for the school itself. By the way if it matters, the Academy does already consider me academically and physically qualified according to my BGO. I have 1460 SATs=, a 4.54/6.0 or 3.7/4.0 high school gpa, a 3.698/4.0 college (dual credit and concurrent enrollment) gpa, baseball freshman year, crew senior year, an associates degree to be awarded this may, almost a month before my actual high school graduation, two years FIRST robotics club, 3 years National Honor Society, and various other qualifications. Thanks for any insight you can give into whether they might take this into consideration when and if they decide to offer me NAPS or Foundation.
