2019 Academy Day

Each Year, Congressman Neal hosts an Academy Day.  This is an informational seminar for young people interested in pursuing an Academy or similar education path.  While it is recommended that interested juniors in High School attend Academy Day, interested high school students of all ages are welcome to attend.  Through the years, this forum has become a valuable tool for interested students and their families to learn about service academies and other similar educational opportunities, and a useful first step in the process of obtaining a nomination to a service academy. The United States Military Academy; United States Naval Academy; United States Air Force Academy; and the United States Merchant Marine Academy are the four service academies needing a nomination, and all participate in our Academy Day.  Additionally, the United States Coast Guard Academy; Mass Maritime Academy; Norwich University; and ROTC programs are invited to participate, expanding the information available to young people.  This year, Academy Day will be held on Saturday, April 27, at noon, at the Springfield Museums.  All participants must pre-register.
