The U.S. Naval Academy prepares young people for careers as officers in the United States Navy and Marine Corps. George Bancroft, secretary of the Navy under President James K. Polk, founded the Naval School in Annapolis, Maryland on October 10, 1845 to improve the training of midshipmen.
 
Between 1850 and 1851 the school was reorganized as the U.S. Naval Academy. During the Civil War (1861-65) the academy moved away from the fighting to Newport, Rhode Island, but returned to Annapolis after the war. Academy graduates played key roles in the Spanish-American War of 1898, which resulted in increased support for the school. Many new buildings were added from 1899 to 1907, and again in 1976 – when the first women were admitted.
 
Candidates must be nominated by an official source, such as the president, members of Congress, or the Navy and Marine Corps. About 1,300 people are selected to enter the freshman class each year based upon entrance exam scores and rigid physical requirements. After successfully completing four years of rigorous physical and scholastic challenges, graduates, such as those shown on the front, receive a bachelor of science degree and are commissioned as officers.
