The Naval Academy Preparatory School, located within the confines of Naval Station Newport in Newport, RI, is a critical component of the United States Naval Academy (USNA) where we enhance Midshipman Candidates’ moral, mental, and physical foundations to prepare them for admission to, and success at, the United States Naval Academy.
The Naval Academy Preparatory School (NAPS) is a one-year p...ost-High School preparatory school. The students have diverse backgrounds, coming from high schools across the United States and its territories or they may be prior enlisted members of the Navy and Marine Corps. The NAPS student body (The Battalion) is selected from applicants to USNA, with each candidate being required to complete the NAPS program before being admitted as a student at USNA.
The Naval Academy has produced noted leaders, and its graduates (many of whom began their journey at the Preparatory School) have excelled in every walk of life. As a historic officer accession program and premier undergraduate university, the USNA has a unique place amongst American educational institutions. Our talented civilian faculty and staff are united by one common purpose - to develop the next generation of leaders for our naval service. In order to best execute that purpose, our faculty, instructors, and support staff are selected from all segments of society and are expected to model the highest professional standards.
Those selected for employment at the Naval Academy Preparatory School are tasked with ensuring a select group of candidates are best prepared to enter the Naval Academy. This task is challenging, but also rewarding as employees work within a coordinated program alongside other faculty and staff dedicated to inspiring excellence, while also receiving the benefits of federal employment and enjoying an exceptional quality-of-life.
