Life at USNA

Leadership Responsibility

Life at the Academy prepares you to be a Naval Officer in the United States Navy or Marine Corps and leadership is one of the foundational skills required.

By the time you take your position as a naval officer leading Sailors and Marines, you will have had four solid years of experience developing and growing your strength as a leader.

During your time at the Academy, you will be taught and guided by a world-class faculty as well seasoned officers and senior enlisted.

By the time you are a first class midshipman in your final year at the Academy, you will be making daily decisions affecting the morale and performance of other midshipmen and your influence will shape a team’s ability to accomplish its goals and objectives.
