Virtual Service Academy Day

Friday, April 24, 2020 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

WASHINGTON – Congressman Ben Cline (VA-06) will host a Virtual Service Academy Day on Friday, April 24, from 2 - 4pm. The event will be held via Microsoft Teams.

Students and their parents will be provided information on the application, nomination, selection, and appointment processes. Representatives from the various service academies are expected to be present on the video-call to answer questions.

  • The United States Military Academy at West Point, New York
  • The United States Naval Academy at Annapolis, Maryland
  • The United States Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point, New York
  • The United States Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs, Colorado

“Attending one of our Nation’s Service Academies is a great honor and a tremendous opportunity for Sixth District students,” Cline said. “While Academy Days are usually held in person, moving this event online will ensure the health and safety of everyone involved, while still providing those interested with all of the necessary information regarding the application and nomination process. In these unprecedented times, my offices remain operational and are working to function as normally as possible to serve District residents.”

An academy appointment is highly competitive, where each academy selects nominees based on moral character, scholastic achievement, physical fitness, leadership, and college admission test scores. The earlier a student begins preparation, the more competitive that student will be in the process.

To sign up for this event, please visit Eventbrite. Once your registration is submitted, a member of Congressman Cline’s staff will provide details on how to join the video-call. Registration closes at 5pm on Thursday, April 23.

Congressman Ben Cline represents the Sixth Congressional District of Virginia. He previously was an attorney in private practice and served both as an assistant prosecutor and Member of the Virginia House of Delegates. Cline and his wife, Elizabeth, live in Botetourt County with their two children.
