Information
Service Academies West Point-Naval Academy-Air Force-Coast Guard Students interested in attending a service academy should contact the office of Congressman Ed Whitfield in Hopkinsville, located at 1403 South Main Street in downtown Hopkinsville, across from the First Baptist Church and Planters Bank. Please call (270) 885-8079. In addition, appointments can be made by Senator Mitch McConnell or Senator Jim Bunning. Students interested in a nomination should make contact in the spring of their junior year in high school. Also, please note that it is extremely important that the student begin the application process with the academies themselves. There are five Service Academies: The United States Air Force (USAFA), Naval (USNA), Military (USMA), Merchant Marine (USMMA), and Coast Guard (USCGA) Academies. Nominations are required for all but the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, to which appointments are made on the basis of an annual nationwide competition. As far as the USAFA, USNA, and USMA are concerned, there are various nomination authorities, with each eligible young person able to apply to both United States Senators from the applicant's state, his or her United States Representative, and the Vice President (if very highly qualified). The other nomination categories are military-affiliated. With respect to the Congressional category, each Representative and each Senator is allowed to have at each of those academies at any one time five persons charged to his or her quota. The competitive method provides that the nominees compete among themselves for final appointment determined by the admissions authorities. They take into consideration a nominee's academic record, extracurricular and athletic activities, physical aptitude, ACT and/or SAT scores, leadership ability, and medical qualifications. Such facets of an applicant's record are also considered during the nomination selection process. No person will be offered admission if he or she does not meet the physical standards of the Academy unless awarded a medical waiver. As competition for nomination and appointment is very keen, it is wise for all interested persons to apply through all sources for which they are eligible and for all Academies in which they have a real interest. An individual may be nominated by more than one nominating authority and/or to more than one Academy. With regard to the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, the locality boundary for nomination by a Representative is the State in which the District lies rather than just the District itself. Each Representative and each Senator may nominate ten candidates each year to compete for admission.
