Jonah McNamara of Santa Barbara Admitted to Army and Navy Academy

Jonah McNamara, son of Rebecca Brockway and Charles McNamara of Santa Barbara, has been admitted to Army and Navy Academy, a military boarding school in Carlsbad, for the 2014-15 school year.

He is one of the newest members of the Class of 2017.

Army and Navy Academy is one of the top military schools in the nation, with a focus on academics, leadership and athletics. Leadership and character development are emphasized and taught through the academy's JROTC program, which is taught in addition to the core subjects that follow the University of California "A-G" course requirements.

The academy boasts a global campus, with students attending from all backgrounds and from more than 15 states and 30 countries. This provides a unique cultural landscape that gives students a true understanding of what it means to be a global citizen.

"Responsibility, accountability and motivation are not just lessons; they are a way of life at Army-Navy," said Maj. Gen. Arthur Bartell, USA (retired), academy president. "We're looking forward to another great year at the academy, educating and developing good character in young men."

Army and Navy Academy welcomes the McNamara family into the school community for 2014-15.

Founded in 1910, the Army and Navy Academy is a private nonprofit institution that provides an academically robust, character-based education for young men, grades 7 through 12. It is the only private boarding school in San Diego County and the only private military academy for high school-age students in California and surrounding states.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
