Senator Mark R. Warner (D-VA) will host his third annual Virginia Service Academy Day on Saturday, April 20th from 10:00am – 1:00pm at the Paramount Theatre in Charlottesville. The event will offer students, parents and guidance counselors a comprehensive overview of the United States service academies and their admission processes.
Attendees will have an opportunity to meet with officials from the five federal service academies, as well as representatives from ROTC programs, Virginia Tech, and Virginia Military Institute. Representatives from most Virginia Congressional offices will also be available.
“One of my most rewarding responsibilities as a Senator is nominating Virginia’s exceptional young men and women for admission to our country’s service academies,” Senator Warner said. “I am proud to be able to connect students and their families with these opportunities.”
The Air Force Academy, Merchant Marine Academy, Military Academy, and Naval Academy require a two-tier admission process of highly-qualified individuals; an applicant must meet the rigorous admissions requirements of an academy as well as receive a Congressional nomination to be accepted into an academy.
Registration for Academy day and information on the nomination process for the service academies is available on the Senator’s website www.warner.senate.gov. You may call the Vienna office at 703-442-0670 with any questions.
