westpoint preparatory

West Point Civilian Preparatory Program

The West Point Preparatory Program is designed to provide a year of post-secondary school education at preparatory schools and military junior colleges for carefully selected and highly motivated young people seeking admission to the United States Military Academy (USMA). Scholarships are awarded in two candidate categories: athletics and scholars/leaders.

The West Point Preparatory Scholarship Program supplements the United States Military Academy Preparatory School (USMAPS) and provides a broader-based preparation than USMAPS. While USMAPS teaches only math, English, and the SAT, the WPPSP requires candidates to take a full course load. The major advantage of the private preparatory school is the small class size, intense and concentrated instruction, and required study five evenings every week. The level of academics is significantly higher than at a public high school and is an excellent transition before coming to West Point.

A very high percentage of the candidates who are awarded scholarships each year are offered admission to the USMA. While the academic grades of WPPSP cadets are not statistically different from the average of their USMA class, their graduation rate is higher than cadets entering from all other sources.

Advisory Program Built into Post Graduate

Mentor, Succeed, Lead

The Advisory Program at Admiral Farragut Academy was created to help our students as they meet the challenges of college classes and living away from home. Our Advisors are members of the community who serve as an essential link between the family and the school. We believe that while students should be responsible for their own education, the Advisor is there to promote independence and self-advocacy within our students while teaching them to utilize the resources provided to them. The Advisor will monitor your child’s progress throughout the year, and act as your primary liaison to the Academy should you have any questions, concerns or information about him that you want someone on campus to know.

I think a role model is a mentor – someone you see on a daily basis, and you learn from them.
