Academy Day 2021

CHARLESTON, - Senator Capito's office has announced that Academy Day 2021 will be held for any and all students, parents, and school officials interested in learning more about U.S. service academies (Air Force, Coast Guard, Merchant Marines, Military/West Point, Naval).  

The events will also have representatives from local ROTC programs on hand to discuss ROTC scholarship opportunities and a representative from the Dept. of Defense’s Medical Examination Review Board will join us on Saturday, September 25, 2021 and Sunday, September 26, 2021.

Academy Day is an opportunity for students, parents, and school officials to ask questions and obtain information regarding the U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Coast Guard Academy, U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, U.S. Military Academy and the U.S. Naval Academy as well as the ROTC scholarship process. No Registration Required.

Students who want to attend a prestigious U.S. Service Academy are generally more successful when they begin planning courses and extracurricular activities early in their academic career.
