About the Naval Academy Parents Club of Central Pennsylvania

As parents of Midshipmen, you are very special. Your child is attending one of the finest institutions in America. They enter the Academy as a young adult and emerge as an officer of the United States Navy or Marine Corps. This journey is an exciting time for you and your Midshipman, and you will have many questions in the days and years ahead.

The Naval Academy Parents Club of Central Pennsylvania was formed in 1990 to provide information and non-financial support to the parents and guardians of United States Naval Academy appointees, Midshipmen, Naval Academy Preparatory School (NAPS) students, Foundation students, and USNA graduates.  The Naval Academy Parents Club of Central Pennsylvania serves as an informational conduit between the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland and Central Pennsylvania.  It spans 31 counties between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia and from the northern border of Pennsylvania south to the Mason-Dixon line.  The club is organized by parents and operates under the guidance of the USNA Alumni Association.

We encourage participation in events focused on the Midshipmen throughout the year.  We work together to support the parents, guardians, and families, as they grow through their years at USNA, by sharing tips, contacts, and ideas for success.  We organize a variety of social and informational events and encourage current Midshipmen, parents of current Midshipmen, and USNA alumni to share their experiences.  Our club activities help us to understand and support our sons and daughters, as they navigate and embrace the challenges and opportunities that go along with being a Midshipman and future Naval or Marine Corps Officer.  There is much to learn about the Naval Academy, and we are here to accompany you on your journey!

Parent club meetings and events are open to all Midshipmen, their parents, alumni, Fleet parents, and Blue and Gold Officers. Our meetings and social gatherings promote goodwill among parents and cultivate the building of lifelong friendships. We urge you to join us. Please contact Membership  for more information.
