Service Academies Information Night

Wednesday, September 2, 2015 - 5:30pm to 7:30pm
211 West Fifth Street
Chaffey Joint Union High School District, Hill Auditorium
Ontario, CA 91762
United States

An informational meeting for middle and high school students interested in attending the U.S. military academies and their parents.  Representatives from the academies will be present to answer questions about their respective institutions and the admissions process.  A representative from Cal Poly Pomona will also be on hand to discuss college readiness.


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. 


In addition to a free college education, 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.   Rep. Torres will nominate, through a competitive process, one individual for each vacant academy slot allotted to the 35th district.


Individuals interested in attending should call (909) 481-6474 or email for additional information or to RSVP.
