Military Academies


Students interested in attending military academies will need to start working toward that goal early in their high school career.

This is a highly specialized application process.  Please refer interested students to their high school counselor for assistance. There are also military recruiters who can support those interested. Also check to see if a student is able to take the ASVAB assessment tool to provide students with some direction/feedback about which military option may be a good fit.

Military Academy options include:

Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC)
 This is a leadership program where you will be able to take 24 elective credits that will coincide with your four year college degree. 
  • Scholarships available to high school seniors 
  • Some academic requirements for admission and continuation, depending upon branch of service 
  • Living allowances while in college 
  • Enter military as an officer after college 

Direct enlistment after high school

  • Students should speak to recruiters from all branches of service
  • Access to specialized training may be enhanced by community college credit
