  • This will be a unique year, but I am sure we will do great.  For this year, previous students should be signing up for Naval Science 3 and ANS3, unless you are a senior, then NS4.  If you are interested in being on the competitive drill teams, sign up for our 4th block Leadership/Drill and Ceremony class.  We will be using Canvas for class activities this year as long as we are virtual.  Keep track of your class, don't get behind!  Check out the calendar for all of our upcoming events.
