We welcome inquiries about our school. Some of the more commonly asked questions can be answered on our Eligibility and FAQ pages. Much more information about the Naval Academy Primary School (NAPS) preschool and elementary school can be found in the Parent Handbook.
NAPS helps children develop academic skills to achieve success. The school's emphasis on good values permeates every aspect of the child's development, offering special programs in the arts, foreign language, technology and physical education. Students who qualify are accepted without regard to race, creed, color or religion, contingent upon class availability. NAPS understands that choosing a school is a significant and important decision for each family. We are eager to provide prospective families with information and experiences needed to make that decision with confidence. We encourage families who are interested in our school to make an on-site visit to obtain more information as they evaluate the opportunities NAPS has to offer their child. Please contact our admissions office for more admissions information.
