Carlsbad, CA ( openpr ) July 19, 2011 - Lieutenant Colonel (LTC) Charles Glimka has been named Commandant for the Army and Navy Academy effective at the beginning of the 2011-2012 school year.

The appointment of LTC Glimka came as a result of a reorganization of the Commandant’s Department brought on by the results of the Academy’s recent internal self-assessment. The self-assessment was conducted during the 2010- 2011 school year in preparation for the school’s upcoming Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) accreditation visit. The reorganization brings the Residential Life Program under the leadership of a single individual who serves as Commandant, with two assistant Commandants, one for Upper and one for Lower School.

LTC Glimka’s career with the Academy began in 2006 after retiring as a Gunnery Sergeant from the United States Marine Corps where he served 22 years. Initially hired as a Residential Life Officer (RLO) for Band and Headquarters Company, he was promoted the following year to the Lower School Commandant position, where he has performed his duties from 2007-2010. In his previous role, Glimka expanded the Residential Life program of the Lower School to become one built on a mentoring and coaching example. He cultivated an environment for cadets comprised of role models and mentors. This highly successful program will now be expanded on a school-wide basis.

Lieutenant Colonel Glimka’s forte in developing young adults is his ability in maintaining a balance between enforcing established expectations and compassion for the students facing today’s challenging world. “Our goal in residential life is to establish an atmosphere outside the classroom the supports success in the classroom.” says Glimka.

Academy President Brigadier General Stephen M. Bliss spoke about the restructuring and selection of LTC Glimka, stating: “Charles Glimka was the best choice for this position. His background, experience and track record of success make him the ideal individual to lead our Residential Life program.”

Located along the shores of Carlsbad, California, Army and Navy Academy ( ) is a college preparatory, military-style boarding school for boys in grades 7 through 12. The Academy was founded with just 13 students in Pacific Beach and relocated to Carlsbad in 1936. Unlike most traditional boarding schools, the Academy consists of 29 buildings on 16.5 acres adjacent the Pacific Ocean. Army and Navy Academy is accredited by Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and California Association of Independent Schools (CAIS).
