2024 Appointees as of 03.20.2024

The honor of attending a service academy comes with the obligation and commitment to serve in the military for a minimum of five years upon graduation.

Students interested in attending a U.S. Service Academy must submit an application for nomination through their congressional office in the spring of their junior year of high school, or the fall of their senior year in high school. 

Members of Congress may nominate candidates for appointment to four of the five U.S. service academies: U.S. Military Academy (USMA), West Point, NY; the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA), Annapolis, MD; the U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA), Colorado Springs, CO; and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA), Kings Point, NY. The fifth service academy, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy (USCGA), New London, CT, does not require a congressional nomination for appointment.

To be considered for a Service Academy Nomination from our office, please email for an application request form. Our application for the high school class of 2025 opened on January 31st, 2024. Interested students may email for an application request form to begin the application process.
