Candidate information

If you're interested in the U.S. Naval Academy, we want to help you learn more!


For all high school students or active duty enlisted personnel interested in finding out more about the U.S. Naval Academy, the North Texas Chapter can help.

Admissions Office Representative: The Chapter can put you in touch with the North Texas liaisons to the USNA Candidate Guidance Office. CAPT Thomas J. Kapurch, USN (Retired) is a USNA '75 graduate serving as our Dallas "Blue and Gold Officer" and Dr. Mike Ryan is the Blue and Gold coordinator for Fort Worth.  Anyone interested in further information regarding Naval Academy admissions should contact CAPT Kapurch at purch@1975.usna.com or Dr. Ryan at mmczr51@gmail.com.

Speak to local Alumni: If you'd like to speak to a local graduate, please feel free to email any of the Chapter Officers.  We'll either talk to you directly or put you in touch with a local graduate with whom you have something in common - perhaps a sport, location, or a military service selection you might be interested in. 

The main USNA Admission website is http://www.usna.edu/Admissions/



Blue & Gold Officers (BGOs) are the volunteer field representatives of the Department of Admissions. Their role is to encourage and guide exceptional individuals to see a Naval career through the NAval Academy. They provide counseling and information to candidates and applicants. While many BGOs are Naval Academy alumni, graduation from USNA is not a prerequisite.

If you are interested in a greatly rewarding volunteer opportunity, working with the next generation of Midshipmen who will be applying to USNA, and supporting the USNA Admissions Information Program, please consider volunteering to be a Blue & Gold Officer.

If you live in NTX with a "75" TX zip code, please contact:  CAPT Thomas J. Kapurch, USN (Ret) at purch@1975.usna.com

If you live in NTX with a "76" or "79" TX zip code please contact: Dr. Mike Ryan at mmczr51@gmail.com
