Building the leaders of tomorrow.


Our program aims to expose cadets to the full rigors of a Naval training program with a focus on leadership skills reinforced with an understanding of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).


Our unparalleled training program is designed to develop interest and ability in seamanship and the seagoing forces. Cadets are introduced to the prestige of a military career with accelerated advancement for those who decide to join our nation's uniformed services


The Core Values we teach are aimed at Instilling virtues of good citizenship and strong moral principles in each cadet, while demonstrating the value of an alcohol, drug and gang free lifestyle

What is the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps?

USNSCC is a national youth leadership development organization that promotes interest and skill in naval disciplines while instilling strong moral character and life skills through leadership and technical programs modeled after the Navy's professional development system.

USNSCC is comprised of two programs. The Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) program is for young people ages 13 through the completion of high school. Also included under the USNSCC umbrella is our junior program the Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC), for young people ages 10 through 13.


Run by a national staff in Arlington, Virginia, we are sponsored by the Navy League of the United States and supported by both the U.S. Navy and

U.S. Coast Guard.

Our unparalleled training program is designed to:

  • Develop interest and ability in seamanship and seagoing skills.

  • Instill virtues of good citizenship and strong moral principles in each cadet.

  • Demonstrate the value of an alcohol, drug and gang free lifestyle.

  • Introduce cadets to the prestige of a military career with accelerated advancement potential of those who decide to join our nation's uniformed services.

We are proudly supported by the U.S. NAVY




This junior cadet program introduces its members to naval life through instruction in basic seamanship and leadership.


NLCC members are able to participate in monthly drill sessions and during school holiday breaks attend a one-week NLCC orientation class as well as speciality annual training courses.

The purpose of the NLCC program is to prepare its cadets for success upon entering NSCC by introducing them to the fundamentals of seamanship and leadership. The training program is less arduous than NSCC's, but still includes a wide variety of away-from-home, one-week training opportunities designed to give cadets exposure to Navy life.

AGES 10-13


The senior cadet program exposes its cadets to the full rigors of a military training program.


Cadets are required to attend a mandatory two-week recruit training. After this requirement is met, cadets are eligible to participate in a variety of nationwide advanced training courses. These courses serve to expose cadets to Navy rating specialties and advanced leadership skills.

Cadets will also be required to further their knowledge of naval history, customs and courtesies. Those cadets who show a developed understanding of Naval heritage will be given the opportunity to be assigned to the Veterans Pride Color Guard and participate in a variety of community, Navy and other service events.  

AGES 13 to the completion of High School
