School Profile

Rickover provides a foundation for future success by enabling cadets to excel academically, to engage in meaningful leadership training and to have experiences that prepare them for post-secondary education.
We believe the world is the classroom; examples of the experiences students have are US and international travel, partnership programs with universities, and interaction with US Navy Admirals, political leaders, and corporate CEOs. Cadets have opportunities to take Advanced Placement and Dual-credit courses, resulting in college credit.
Cadets will have opportunities to be peer leaders from their first day of school. They may be responsible for a squad of 5 to a class of 28. They can rise to be responsible for the school of 600 students.
Rickover cadets are part of a tradition of academic excellence and post-secondary preparation. Our graduates for years have averaged $90,000 to $100,000 in scholarship earnings. 100% of graduates for five years have been accepted to a post-secondary school. A large percentage of our graduates complete more than 100 hours of community service, rather than the required 40 hours.
Our cadets live by our motto, Learning to Lead in Order to Serve.
