Academy Nominations

Dear Applicant,
 
Welcome to my academy nomination application for the academy classes of 2025 (entering the summer of 2021). It is an honor for me to nominate the best and brightest young women and men from Virginia as candidates to the U.S. Military, Naval, Air Force and Merchant Marine Academies. 
 
This is an extremely competitive process. Each year my office receives 500-600 applications from students all over Virginia yet only 10 applicants per academy will receive a nomination. I encourage you to submit the very best application for consideration.  Applicants are evaluated by an esteemed group of academy alumni that have served and are serving their country with honor as officers. I trust them whole-heartedly to choose our next generation of military leadership. They will evaluate you in the areas of academics, athletics, leadership, extracurricular activities, community service and family obligations.
 
My office does not conduct in-person applicant interviews. We believe our rigorous and thorough application process provides a fair and unbiased evaluation of all applicants.
 
This is a very exciting time in your life, and we want to assist you in the nomination process.
