Nov. 20, 2014—The CFISD guidance and counseling department hosted its annual Military Academy Night at the Berry Center on Nov. 18, welcoming secondary students and parents as they gathered information and visited with representatives from the five service academies:

  • U.S. Military Academy (West Point)
  • U.S. Naval Academy
  • U.S. Air Force Academy
  • U.S. Coast Guard Academy
  • U.S. Merchant Marine Academy

Representatives were also available from The Citadel, the Texas Maritime Academy (Texas A&M – Galveston), the Army ROTC (Texas A&M Corps of Cadets) and the Air Force ROTC.

Information regarding the admissions requirements, application process and the nomination process was reviewed.

Students will open their admissions file with an academy and begin the application for a nomination from their senator or congressional representative during the spring semester of their junior year. Counselors are available at each campus to assist students with this process. Additional information can be found on the academies’ websites.
