Military Service Academy Night

Dear High School Students and Family Members,

We are pleased to announce that representatives for the United States Military Academy at West Point, U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Coast Guard Academy, and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy will be hosting a Military Service Academy Night for students interested in attending one of our nation’s Service Academies. As students begin to consider and work towards the possibility of attending an academy, this event is intended to assist in their overall preparedness.

WHEN: This year’s Service Academy Night will take place on Thursday, September 30, 2021,
beginning at 6:00 PM. The program will include presentations from Academy Liaison Officers and a detailed explanation of the Congressional nomination process. Service Academy Liaisons will also be available to answer questions from Academy Night attendees.

WHERE: Robert Morris University, Yorktown Hall, 8256 University Blvd., Moon Township, PA
15108 (across from Moon Twp. High School).

DID YOU KNOW: Over the years thousands of students and parents from across Pennsylvania have attended these Military Service Academy events and benefited from the information provided. The demand for this information is high due in part to the competitive nature of the nomination and appointment process. Nominations to the Service Academies are made by the President, Vice President, or a Member of Congress. There are five Service Academies: The United States Air Force Academy (USAFA), The United States Naval Academy (USNA), The United States Military Academy (USMA), The United States Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA), and the United States Coast Guard Academy (USCGA). Nominations are required for all but the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, to which appointments are made on the basis of an annual nationwide competition.

The desire of these young men and women of Pennsylvania to serve our nation is truly admirable, and we hope that this event provides them the information and tools they need to be successful applicants to our Service Academies.

We hope you all can join us on Thursday, September 30, 2021, at 6:00 PM!
