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. For more information, please review the page of Frequently Asked Questions for those seeking a Service Academy Nomination.
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
- U.S. Naval Academy (USNA) - Annapolis, MD
- U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA) - Colorado Springs, CO
- 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.
Congressman Warren Davidson may nominate up to ten individuals for each vacant academy slot allotted to our district.
Academy Information Sessions
The academies offer an “Ivy-League”-level education, valued at over $400,000, that will train our future military leaders. Ideal candidates will be proven leaders with a wide variety of academic, extracurricular, and athletic achievements. This session will inform students on the requirements and procedures for seeking a congressional nomination to the academies. Those who are currently juniors or older are the target for this event, but students as young as 8th grade may benefit from attending. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this meeting was held via a Zoom meeting. You can view the information in the videos and slideshow presentation here.
* The deadline to return all completed materials is September 29, 2023.
In the meantime, please contact the academies directly to learn more about their admissions process and explore their summer session options.
Best wishes to you as you pursue your goal of attending one of the U.S. Service Academies and serving our country.
