Since 1802, many of America's finest students have sought to enroll as cadets or midshipmen at the nation's prestigious United States service academies. To apply to attend the Naval, Military, Air Force or Merchant Marine Academies, students must receive a nomination from one of their Members of Congress.
Applicants must be at least 17 years old and no more than 22 years old as of July 1st of the year of admission to a service academy. Interested Mainers should contact my office in the spring or summer of their junior year in high school.
The nomination application for the incoming Class of 2026 is open. The application deadline is October 30th. If you have any questions regarding service academy nominations, please contact Katie Fellows, my Director of Service Academy Nominations, at email@example.com.
The Maine congressional delegation will be hosting its next Service Academy Night, in conjunction with Maine Maritime Academy, next April in Bangor. Please stay tuned for more details closer to the event.
Please contact academies directly to obtain catalogs and other specific information.
