United States Naval Academy Foundation Cadets

For over 30 years Hargrave has maintained a working relationship with the United States Naval Academy Foundation (USNA Foundation). Through this relationship, U.S. Naval Academy bound prep students use a Hargrave Post-Graduate year geared specifically for them. The USNA Foundation Cadet has growth opportunities in the area of academics, principled leadership, spirituality and, in some cases, athletic accessibility and improvement. The Academic program typically includes Honors Critical Reading and Writing, Honors Chemistry, Advanced Algebra, Pre-Calculus and Honors Physics.
