Naval Academy Information Program Mission Statement
To market the opportunities available at the United States Naval Academy and to identify, recruit, and counsel young men and women of diverse backgrounds who possess the potential to be developed morally, mentally, and physically into the nation’s future Naval, government, and civilian leaders.
Blue and Gold Officers (BGOs) are “field” representatives of the Admissions Office who cover a specific geographic area, usually defined by assigned high schools. They encourage exceptional individuals to seek a naval career through the Naval Academy and other officer-accession programs. BGOs provide counseling and information to candidates and applicants throughout the Naval Academy application process. BGOs are comprised of both Naval Academy Information Affiliates (NAIAs) and Naval Academy Information Officers (NAIOs). Though many BGOs have served as Naval Officers, prior service or graduation from the Naval Academy are not pre-requisites for assignment. Any mature adult who has a sincere interest in fulfilling the mission of the Naval Academy and the Naval Academy Information Program may be considered as a BGO candidate. Area Coordinators make the initial recommendation to the Head of Candidate Guidance for assignment. Approved applicants for the Blue and Gold Program must pass a proficiency examination before being designated Affiliates. Affiliates must attend BGO summer training offered at the Academy during the summer within two years of designation. Upon successful completion of the initial BGO Training, Affiliates are re-designated as Information Officers. Background checks will be conducted on all BGOs who join the program.
