NAVAL ACADEMY AND NAVAL ACADEMY PREPARATORY SCHOOL.// 
 
RMKS/1.  The U.S. Naval Academy (USNA) is seeking top performing, energetic 
male and female Sailors and Marines, active and reserve, who have 
demonstrated strong leadership, for admission to the Naval Academy Class of 
2026.  Among each USNA class is a corps of prior-enlisted Sailors and Marines 
who infuse peer-level fleet experience into the Brigade of Midshipmen. 
Twenty years from now, these young men and women, from all walks of American 
life, will lead our fleet.  Commanding Officers (CO) are encouraged to 
identify motivated enlisted personnel who meet the criteria and may be good 
candidates for selection to USNA. 
 
2.  Successful candidates will be top-quality Sailors and Marines who fit the 
following profile: 
    a.  Academics. 
        (1) Possess a strong high school grade point average indicating the 
potential to succeed at USNA.  Fleet applicants ranked in the top 40 percent 
of their high school class are typically considered competitive. 
        (2) Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores taken within the last two 
years.  The SAT is a three-part test consisting of reading, math, and 
writing.  Applicants should aim to score above 500 in reading (verbal) and 
above 550 in math, with a combined minimum of 1050.  The writing component is 
not required for consideration for admission.  For applicants who have taken 
the American College Test (ACT) within the last two years, scores of 22 in 
English and 24 in Math are recommended.  Potential candidates with SAT or ACT 
scores that are older than two years or below these guidelines are strongly 
encouraged to retake the test. 
        (3) Typically completed four years of mathematics, including a strong 
foundation in geometry, algebra, and trigonometry, four years of english, and 
one year of chemistry.  Additionally, physics, calculus, history, and two 
years of a foreign language are strongly recommended.  Continued education 
since high school is vital; candidates are encouraged to strengthen their 
admission application with college courses in higher level math and sciences. 
        (4) If schedule permits, applicants are encouraged to complete 
college 
courses that display current academic ability. 
    b.  Top performers who have demonstrated or possess strong leadership 
(e.g., past and present Command Junior Sailors/Bluejackets of the 
Quarter/Year, top 20 percent performers in "A" and "C" schools, class 
leaders, Honor Guard members, and community volunteers). 
    c.  Good moral character and unquestionable loyalty to the United States, 
as determined by a command interview and military recommendations. 
    d.  No record of disciplinary action under Article 15, Uniform Code of 
Military Justice, or conviction by civil court (except minor traffic 
violations) during the three years preceding application for admission. 
Waivers are on a case-by-case basis. 
    e.  We are seeking candidates with outstanding physical fitness.  In 
addition to passing the Candidate Fitness Assessment in the USNA application, 
candidates need to have demonstrated the ability to pass the Naval Academy 
physical fitness requirements within the last year.  The USNA Physical 
Readiness Test standards (Minimum Passing Scores) are: 
        (1)  Push-ups (Two Minutes):  45 (Male); 20 (Female) 
        (2)  Front Plank:  1:45; and 
        (3)  1.5 Mile Run:  10:30 (Male); 12:40 (Female). 
    f.  Must not have passed their 23rd birthday on 1 July of the year of 
admission to USNA. 
    g.  Must not be married, pregnant, or have incurred obligations of 
parenthood. 
 
3.  Candidates with superior academic performance and strong military 
backgrounds may receive direct appointments to USNA.  Top performers who 
need to strengthen their academic background may be selected to attend the 
Naval Academy Preparatory School (NAPS) in Newport, RI for one year and 
receive an appointment to USNA the following year. 
 
4.  Personnel selected to attend USNA or NAPS must be medically qualified 
by the Department of Defense Medical Examination Review Board (DoDMERB) in 
order to be commissioned as an officer in the Navy or Marine Corps.  Once 
candidates complete 50 percent of the application, their name will be sent 
to DoDMERB for the physical and eye exams.  The candidate will be contacted 
by Concorde, the DoDMERB contractor, with information on where to receive the 
physical and eye exams.  The Service Member will be contacted by the USNA 
Fleet Coordinator with information on how to get the physical and eye exam 
completed at their own Military Treatment Facility as an alternative. 
Reference (a) provides medical standards. 
 
5.  Up to 170 regular and reserve personnel may be appointed to USNA each 
year.  The deadline to apply to the Class of 2026 is 31 December 2021.  The 
deadline for all completed application documents is 31 January 2022. 
Applicants are strongly encouraged to complete their application as soon as 
possible.  Packages completed before 31 January 2022 will be reviewed by the 
Admissions Board as soon as they are received.  Packages will not be reviewed 
without the CO's endorsement.  References (b) and (c) provide guidance. 
 
6.  An applicant becomes an official candidate by submitting a preliminary 
application on-line at https://www.usna.edu/Admissions/.  A follow-on e-mail 
back to the fleet applicant will provide them with a candidate number and 
instructions for completing the full application.  USNA operates on a rolling 
admissions process and fleet applicants are encouraged to complete their 
applications early to improve competitiveness. 
 
7.  Direct application questions to the Fleet Liaison at (410) 293-1839/DSN 
281-1839 or siegfrie@usna.edu, or write to:  U.S. Naval Academy, Candidate 
Guidance Office, Halsey Field House, 52 King George St, Annapolis, MD 
21402-1318, Attn:  Fleet Liaison.

      The FBI has contacted a Navy veteran, Richard Osthoff, as part of an investigation into embattled Rep. George Santos and a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for Osthoff's sick service dog. Osthoff confirmed the call from the FBI, and sources familiar with the matter confirmed the nature of the investigation -- which adds to the growing list of legal issues and controversies Santos, R-N.Y., is facing.
