Our Mission to… Educate and Develop Good Character in Young Men. … is also Our
A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
The Academy’s philosophy, as articulated in our current Strategic Plan, advances the fulfillment of our mission to educate and develop good character in young men. It provides a pathway for cadets to pursue the knowledge needed to realize their individual potential; it develops a sense of brotherhood, self-discipline, leadership and respect for others; it enables cadets to acquire personal honor and pride in themselves and the schoolwide community and to gain respect for God, country and all for which they stand. In support of this philosophy and our mission, our goals upon my becoming President in 2002 were to raise and improve all aspects of our program and to inspire. We needed to inspire our young cadets to be proud to walk the halls, to become part of over a century of lineage and, be “all they could be.” We needed to inspire our alumni to participate as proud graduates and energize them to support our good work. In addition, we needed to inspire all our employees, our patrons and the community at large to support our philosophy and mission.
While much has been accomplished in this regard over the last 11 years our work is by no means done. We can, and we must do more. The Academy has embarked on an ambitious and achievable renovation of our campus through the implementation of its Master Plan. It is critical to the future of the Academy that we succeed in implementing our Master Plan in order to accomplish our mission. Achieving the superior condition of our physical plant is necessary in delivering on our promise. What follows in this booklet is the case for why every member of our school-wide community should support our Master Plan. Very simply, we cannot do it without you. The most direct method for inspiring our cadets is to demonstrate to them our commitment to the Academy’s values and our mission. Few, opportunities serve as better outward displays of this commitment than the modernization of our campus, in that it provides tangible evidence for our cadets to see and experience. What better way to educate young men to understand the significance and value of good character than for them to see it in the adult members of our school-wide community? Our cadets are a reflection of what they see in us. We have an opportunity to provide a positive example and model for their behavior. It inculcates in them an understanding of their responsibility for ensuring the future success of the Academy. When patron’s and alumni’s names are placed on walls and pavers as a tangible commitment of their support to help to build a better campus, it is neither vanity nor materialism that is perceived. Rather, our cadets are inspired to greater heights and to be their better selves. No better example of this exists than the events of September 13th of this year. That is the date upon which the Warrior football team played its first home game at the new Duffield Sports Center on Maffucci Field. On that day, and for every day going forward, the battle cry “WARRIOR PRIDE” has even greater meaning to our cadets.
Everyone who experiences an athletic event, military parade or ceremony at the Duffield Sports Center, whether friends, neighbors, opponents, alumni or cadets, is inspired by the facility. It is exceptional and it, in turn, challenges our cadets to be exceptional as well. The remainder of the campus must inspire in like manner and it will, if our school-wide community continues to demonstrate extraordinary dedication and generosity toward the Academy’s mission and values. Your participation and support in helping to rebuild the Army and Navy Academy’s physical plant is an opportunity to find leadership and excellence within yourselves and to develop it in our cadets at the same instance. So I ask you now to ask yourself: where is the Army and Navy Academy on your priority list of philanthropic giving? Does this challenge, this opportunity to better our cadets inspire you? In the following pages you will see our plans for constructing or remodeling over 20 different buildings throughout the campus. If academics, athletics, leadership, associated student body or residential life peak your interest, there is a meaningful opportunity to get involved in making that portion of the Master Plan a reality. As I prepare to hand over the responsibility for the leadership of the Academy to MG Art Bartell, I want to thank you for having inspired me for over a decade. I have no doubt that you will continue to do so for the institution and the young men you rightly hold so dear. Let’s finish building and inspiring WARRIOR PRIDE!

WHO WE ARE
Continuing the Tradition that Inspires
â€œAttending ANA was a very important decision for me and the foundation of my future. It helped formulate the standards and values which served me well throughout my career. We are now embarking upon an ambitious and much needed program to construct and remodel many of the facilities. Contributing to this effort will ensure for alumni the continuation their legacy. The challenge for future generations will be to take advantage of every opportunity that the academy offers to excel, both physically and intellectually in their chosen field. It will be a great experience maximize it!â€? - General William Crouch, USA, ret. (ANA Class of '59) Former Vice Chief of Staff of the United States Army
History of Army Navy Academy At a time when schools everywhere are struggling to reach young men, the Army and Navy Academy has shown the way - inspiring, for more than 100 years. When Colonel Thomas A. Davis opened the Academy in 1910, he created a system of education that has survived as one of the great learning models of independent school education. It is one that matters, that inspires more today than ever before. Fifty years ago, military schools dotted the American landscape. Several were located in San Diego. Today the Army and Navy Academy is the last remaining institution of its kind on the West Coast. Alumni and other friends of the Academy are determined to see its life-changing work continue. Colonel Davis’ genius was his ability to adapt the military structure and way of life to an even larger purpose. His preference for a unique educational model combining academic preparation, physical fitness, leadership training and character development has proven to be a highly effective strategy for turning boys into young men with unique leadership skills.
from Pacific Beach in San Diego to the bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Carlsbad, with a one year stay in Los Angeles in between. Gradually the campus of today took shape, as academic buildings, housing for cadets and staff, and athletic facilities were completed one by one. Alumni are succeeding in college and beyond. Parents, employers and college officials are taking notice. There is no longer any question; the Academy model has staying power and value. The current Master Plan was created to ensure that the educational model Colonel Davis created will not only survive but flourish. An extensive modernization of the campus facilities and grounds will position the Academy for the needs of the 21st century while preserving the best of the past. This endeavor will ensure that Colonel Davis’ legacy will continue and inspire our current cadets by protecting our most cherished physical asset – our campus. The new Master Plan will modernize the campus. The architectural style of the Academy will remain unchanged: the commitment to the making of men—men who are well educated, well rounded, strong, honorable and ready to lead will continue.
Since its founding, the example set by the Academy has always earned high praise. For example, in 1926, the Academy was one of the first West Coast schools to earn authorization as a Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) program. At the time, 30 other California schools were denied the designation. The Academy stood out even then. In 1936, Colonel Davis and his dedicated staff moved the school
“I want each alum to leverage their ANA experience to be successful in their chosen career, whatever it may be. They must strive to be their best. They must use the discipline and structure of the school to help guide and set the course for success in life.” - Senator David G. Kelley '47
WHAT WE DO
Inspiring Tomorrow's Leaders
The Proof Is In The Alumni By holding fast to Colonel Davis’ educational model the Army and Navy Academy changes young lives. The Academy’s more than 6,000 graduates are her greatest achievement. These men, who have gone on to lead successful and productive lives, credit Army Navy with much of their success.
The Academy’s success is seen in many ways . . . . . . in the college acceptance letters that came to every single senior last year, reflecting the high percentage of college attendance after graduation. . . . in the caliber of the colleges where Academy cadets have recently enrolled: MIT, Johns Hopkins, RIT, Purdue, Boston University, Boston College, NYU, Queens College (Canada),USC, UCLA, UC Berkeley, UCSD, UCSB, UCI, Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, the Universities of Colorado, Oregon, and Washington— plus USMA, USNA, USAFA, USCGA, Texas A&M (Corps of Cadets), VMI and the Citadel. . . . in the college scholarships received by cadets for their academic and athletic prowess. . . . by the life accomplishments of countless successful alumni from all walks of life: Four-Star General, Peace Corps volunteer in Rwanda, respected physician or scientist, Superior Court judge, business leader and community volunteer. . . . by the lifelong friendships that bring Alumni back to the Academy time and time again. More than any other donor to the Academy, when Alumni participate in building the campus, they have a profound effect on the cadets. Alumni giving demonstrates leadership to other alumni, to the existing cadets, the faculty, staff and all other patrons. It makes a direct showing that the core values of the academy are working to make better men and better communities.
“It gave me discipline, it gave me character, it gave me assurance, it gave me leadership, it gave me confidence, and I practice today what I did 50 years ago.” - Rudy Nelson ‘58
"Army & Navy Academy gave me the discipline and endurance to work harder than most. The friendships forged all those years ago are still bedrock of my endeavors, and will last a lifetime." - Ryan Bozajian ‘98

HOW WE INSPIRE
Turning Boys into Menâ€Ś..and Men into Leaders
The Army and Navy Academy adheres to the same six educational pillars that Colonel Davis put in place a century ago. Across the decades these pillars have remained fundamentally the same, while at the same time evolving into a comprehensive center of education that meet the needs of
a 21st century society.
Academics Athletics Leadership Character Development Associated Student Body Residential Life
“By eighth grade our son Nick was positive that he was going to go into the military. We learned about ANA on-line and were intrigued. His counselor said that she could see him thrive in a structured environment where he would have opportunities to exercise his leadership skills and competitive nature. Once we visited the campus and met some outstanding teachers, we let Nick make the final decision. Although he changed his mind about a military career, he realized that ANA would afford him an excellent education.”
- Tracey Borst and Robert Menicucci Parents of Nick '13
“We watched our son and his fellow cadets flourish at ANA and develop into wonderful young men, and we are now witnessing just how well ANA prepared our son for college – academically and otherwise. ANA provides the environment, experiences and tools for each cadet to succeed while there and in life after leaving ANA. In short, we believe in the place, its mission and methodologies.” - Camille and David Boatwright Parents of Bret ‘13 9
THE MASTER PLAN
Inspiring the Community and the Future
The Guiding Principles of the Master Plan â€“ What will Inspiration Accomplish? The Inspire Campaign has been created to fund the implementation of Army and Navy Academyâ€™s Master Plan for extensive modernization of the campus facilities and grounds to position the Academy for the needs of the 21st century, preserving the best of the past and inspiring future generations.
The Master Plan will allow the Academy to... 10
REACH MORE BOYS The Master Plan will allow the Academy to accept as many as 440 cadets, up from 350 in a typical year now. The modernized campus will play a key role in attracting more students to our Carlsbad campus. PROVIDE A 21ST CENTURY EDUCATION This involves the latest technology in classrooms and the library, multi-purpose spaces for evolving interests and needs, and amenities appropriate to current expectations. It also means new elective courses (e.g., robotics) and athletic teams (e.g., lacrosse) that are not possible now. The result will be better preparation for college and careers. RAISE THE STANDARD OF THE ACADEMY’S FACILITIES TO MATCH THE QUALITY OF ITS PROGRAM Families choose the Academy for the quality of its education, not for the attractiveness of its facilities; nevertheless, the infrastructure must not discourage their interest. ATTRACT THE HIGHEST CALIBER CADETS AND FACULTY Surrounded by goal-oriented, college-bound peers and exceptional instructors, every boy will be inspired to excel. STRENGTHEN THE SENSE OF COMMUNITY ON CAMPUS The configuration of buildings and open spaces envisioned for the Master Plan will give cadets a secure feeling of enclosure in a private space that exists just for them.
PUT THE ACADEMY’S BEST FOOT FORWARD From Carlsbad Boulevard, passersby will see the campus framed on one side by the new athletic facilities and on the other by the main gate. Support functions such as maintenance will be moved to less visible areas. Parking for public events will be much more abundant and easier to find. PRESERVE AND ENHANCE THE CHARM AND HERITAGE OF THE CAMPUS All buildings will retain the Mission architectural style that sets the Academy apart, reflects well on the surrounding community and gives cadets, staff and visiting families pride in their surroundings. MAKE THE CAMPUS ACCESSIBLE TO STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES Tiered classrooms were popular in the 1960s, but they are part of what is keeping the campus from complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The Academy has a philosophical commitment to correcting such limitations. CREATE MORE OPPORTUNITIES FOR SUMMER LEARNING Last summer more than 50 youngsters were turned down for basketball camp because there simply was no room for them. INSPIRE… Finally, the entire Academy family will be able to gather comfortably for games and celebrations. Every aspect of the Academy’s modernization will instill pride in cadets, their families, alumni, and members of the community.

INSPIRATION THROUGH PROGRESS
Phase 1 Complete
“Upon the fields of friendly strife are sown the seeds that on other fields on other days, will sow the seeds of victory.” - General Douglas MacArthur
“The Athletics Department inspires character strength as much as physical strength.” - John Maffucci Executive Director, Black and Gold Council and former Athletic Director
The Duffield Sports Center THE ROOM TO INSPIRE Given space constraints on campus, any new construction may necessitate the displacement of a different building that is still in use for housing, classrooms or offices. The exception was the land on the east side of Carlsbad Boulevard where the athletic field is located. Here there was room to grow and room to inspire. Therefore, as Phase 1 of the Master Plan, the new athletic center was constructed replacing the old facilities and field. Beginning the Master Plan with construction of a sports center minimized disruption during subsequent phases of development. The rooms in the new center will be available for multiple uses during construction of other new buildings, most importantly, for classrooms as we replace academic buildings. The rollout of the entire Master Plan will be carefully sequenced in this way and relies upon completion of the sports center to support subsequent construction. The new sports center consists of a multi-purpose athletic and community center as well as a completely renovated stadium with artificial turf and lighting to enable night time competition and training. While the sports center’s main purpose is to support the Academy’s interscholastic athletic program, it will also serve as a community center where the entire Academy family can gather for a celebration or educational endeavor. The field itself will provide a superior parade field to support the regular military reviews conducted in honor of patrons, alumni, graduating seniors or the annual City of Carlsbad Veteran’s Day parade. In addition, community youth groups, adult sports leagues and other independent schools in need of athletic facilities will be able to use the facility, as will the Academy’s summer program. The ribbon cutting for the Duffield Sports Center on October 5, 2013 marked the completion of Phase 1 of the Master Plan.
“The Duffield Sports Center honors the Academy and the opportunities it offers young men. With one son a graduate and another in its ranks, we are pleased to be part of rebuilding the Academy, and we hope the Sports Center inspires cadets to discover and apply their strengths as future leaders.” - Dave and Cheryl Duffield Parents of Matt ’13 and Kevin ‘18”
Inspire the Future
We shall not fail or falter; we shall not weaken or tire. Neither the sudden shock of battle; nor the long-drawn trials of vigilance and exertion, will wear us down.
Give us the tools and we shall finish the job. - Winston S. Churchill
THE CASE FOR CONTINUING
What It Will Cost The cost for the Master Plan build out is estimated to be 75 Million Dollars. This includes the necessary parking, landscaping and City of Carlsbad beautification. The Army and Navy Academy has already raised and reserved the first 10 Million Dollars. The next phases will include the building of new student housing which will allow for an additional 100 students on campus both during the school year and in summer programs. It will also provide in dorm housing for staff and faculty. In addition, an academic building will be constructed to create needed modern classroom facilities and the necessary academic space for more students. The next phase will commence in 2014. Constant attention is paid to minimizing the impact and disruption to campus life. No independent school can finance major capital improvements entirely with revenue from tuition. Accordingly, the Academy must rely on the generosity of its Alumni and Patrons, those who have experienced and believe in our program, to fund these facilities. By doing so, those who have benefitted from the program may give back to ensure that a similar or greater benefit is available to those future generations who will also progress from the Academy’s unique and extremely successful educational model. The Academy’s Master Plan, which combines a vision of the 21st century education with the traditions established by Colonel Davis will be the engine that will fuel another century of success for future generations of cadets.

Inspiring Immediate Excellence
The Academy follows the Independent School Financial Model. Tuition and fees cover annual operating costs such as salaries, taxes, utilities, maintenance, and basic academic and extracurricular programs. Charitable contributions fund our Margin of Excellence programs not covered by tuition and feesâ€”items such as athletics, clubs, arts, music, technology, library, professional development and capital improvements. 20
The Warrior Fund depends on participation from every member of the school community—parents, grandparents, alumni, parents of alumni, faculty, staff, friends, foundations and corporations. Please keep the Warrior Fund in your giving plans even as you consider your contributions to the Master Plan. Every year, “Funding Excellence” provides the resources necessary to ensure that our cadets have the best opportunity to fulfill their promise for success… Community – Annual Economic Impact The local community substantially benefits from the Academy’s presence. The growth of the campus inspires greater participation from the local businesses and local patrons and as a superior gateway to the city of Carlsbad.

WHY SUPPORT THE ACADEMY
Inspiring Character and Leadership
The Academyâ€™s Need to Inspire is More Important Now than Ever Contributions to the INSPIRE CAMPAIGN allow The Academy to continue implementing the Master Plan to fulfill the mission to Educate and Develop Good Character in Young Men. This endeavor is more important now than ever... 22
The world needs men who are truly ready to lead. In a business crisis, a natural disaster or in actual combat, the Academy graduate is the one who steps forward first. He has studied and practiced leadership until it is second nature. Whatever the situation, he can take command without hesitation.
History will remember this era as the Communication Age. Men today are expected to write, speak (and listen) with confidence and skill. Cadets are equally effective using social media, e-mail, Skype, web sites, etc. As graduates, they are equipped to excel in our global economy.
The world needs more men of good character, especially at the top. At the Academy, every moment of the day is seen as an opportunity for building character. The Honor Code is a constant reminder of the imperative to not lie, cheat or steal, or tolerate those who do.
The academy is a model for the global community. Cadets come from all over the United States and from many other countries. They learn to welcome diversity, not fear it, and learn from one another.
Civility is a tradition worth revisiting. Academy cadets and alumni are refreshingly polite and gracious, gentlemen through and through. They earn the respect of those who know them by their exemplary conduct. The Academy is in the vanguard of teaching respect and tolerance. Cadets are expected to treat others with dignity and respect at all times. There is no room within the Academy’s ranks for those who might bully or haze their classmates. The Academy is a model for a balanced mind and body. Every cadet is expected to participate in a formal physical fitness program or interscholastic sport in each of the three CIF sport seasons (fall; winter; spring) There is no entitlement mentality at the academy. Cadets learn that privileges are not granted automatically because of age, size or physical strength. They must be earned. Teamwork is the norm in the Corps of Cadets. Employees today tend to work in teams rather than by themselves. Entrepreneurs form partnerships. Non-profits affiliate with one another. This trend toward collaboration is nothing new to Academy cadets. By the time they graduate, cadets have spent so much time working in teams that it is a force of habit to them.
Academy cadets have always made friends from different backgrounds. As early as 1915, boys were enrolled from two dozen states, plus Canada, China, France, Latin America, and the Pacific Islands. The campus today is even more representative of the global family. “Boys have been taught to be thoughtful of others, to be kind and considerate, to be respectful to father and mother and gentle in old age.” Academy Catalogue, 1923 When you support the Army and Navy Academy with your financial contributions you are part of over a century of service to the U.S. and the local community and your gifts will allow the Academy to grow and continue developing and inspiring young men of character for generations to come.
“The Academy instilled values and allowed me to develop leadership skills I never knew I had. While attending the Academy, I attained the rank of Eagle Scout. Following graduation, I attended a top 30 ranked University, became an Officer and fighter pilot in the United States Marine Corps, and now enjoy employment with United Airlines as a Captain. I remain in close contact with many of my Academy classmates and hold a special bond that will last my lifetime. This institution allowed me to create an inner drive for excellence and an ownership of my future success. Without the financial support of alumni, patrons and the local community, the Academy will not realize its potential” - Mr. Mark Duffer '87
A LETTER FROM THE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES
Leaders are not born, they are Inspired. Those of you that know me well understand the undying love I have for the Army and Navy Academy. I spent my formative years here from 1956 until graduation in 1963. I have served on the Board of Trustees for 7 years, 5 of which as its Chairman. I consider this both a privilege and a responsibility. When I tell you I was fortunate to be inspired by this fine institution, I mean this as a sincere expression of gratitude for all it has given me and others similarly situated. I believe deeply in our mission and our values. We educate and develop good character in young men largely through the means of teaching leadership. Our capital campaign is about leadership. You inspire our cadets and our community to participate through your own participation. I am struck by how much support we have received by the patrons to sustain our Academy. I am certain it inspires the cadets. It also inspires me and the Board of Trustees as a whole. We have made extraordinary progress thus far. However, our work here is not done. We are not at “the beginning of the end, but it is perhaps the end of the beginning.” Recently, I came across the often repeated quote of Edmund Burke. “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” I also heard again President Ronald Reagan’s comment that, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” In writing to you, these references made me consider how fortunate the Army and Navy community has been for over a century and how vigilant we must be to keep our Academy from faltering. In a variation of Burke’s theme, all that is necessary for our Academy to perish is for good patrons to do nothing. Furthermore, Reagan’s reference to freedom pertains equally to the values our Academy inspires in its cadets and how they must be perpetuated. The Army and Navy Academy inspires its cadets to Duty, Service, Respect, Loyalty, Honor, Integrity, Courage and Gratitude. If we fail to inspire we will fulfill Reagan’s prophecy. No such failure will occur here if we realize the vision of the 21st Century – the completion of the Master Plan. Earlier I mentioned the gratitude I have toward the Academy and the support of its patrons. If you are a parent or relative of a cadet, thank you for entrusting us with the duty to inspire. If you are alumni, thank you for remaining engaged with your legacy. If you are faculty or staff, thank you for your service and dedication. If you are a community member or friend of the Academy, thank you for supporting our growth. And if you are a cadet, thank you for joining my band of brothers.
Together, there is so much good that we can accomplish if we continue to build and inspire. I stand ready to do all that is necessary to accomplish this. I implore you to stand with me. As Gen. Bliss reminded us, Warrior Pride inspires us to greater heights and to be our better selves. The physical expression of these simple words is fully embodied in our Master Plan. Together we must see it through from an abstract idea to a tangible reality. - Jack Wyatt ‘63 CAPT, US NAVY (Retired) Chairman of the Board of Trustees
