Military Academy Information

Military Academies

One option for a four-year college degree is to consider applying to a military academy.  It is important to research and begin the application process early on during the junior year of high school; however, academic preparation should begin starting in the freshman year.

Additional Considerations:
  • The education attained is a first rate, four-year degree from a well-respected college, paid for with a full tuition scholarship. 
  • Entrance to one of the service academies requires significant commitment, carrying a military obligation in the respective service.
  • Classes, majors, sports and activities can be similar to public or private college experiences, but there is distinct military orientation to the undergraduate experience.
  • Academic preparation should begin early in a student's high school career.  Application process should start during the junior year.
  • Some of the academies will require a nomination, primarily by a Congressman.  Most members of Congress will not process requests after October of the senior year.  Qualifications include not only academics, but also physical and medical qualifications.
