Bridging the Military-Civilian Divide

March 16,2017

All Academy Day Comes to Hampton Roads

Academy Day2

This year, the All Military Academy Day will take place at Tidewater community College, in Virginia Beach.

Local veteran and Academy Day Coordinator, Kevin Joyce, shares how All Academy Day impacted his life.
“Nineteen years ago, I attended an All Academy Day and then later received an appointment to the Naval Academy. That day changed my perspective and ultimately changed the trajectory of my life. I considerate a privilege to help coordinate our event this year and hopefully it will do the same for others.”

This will be the 9th consecutive year for the event where every US Military Academy has a graduate speak about the opportunity to receive a world-class education and an opportunity to serve our country.

Representatives for all five military academies will be present, including United States Naval Academy, United States Military Academy, United States Air Force Academy, United States Coast Guard Academy, and the United States Merchant Marine Academy.


Who should attend: 8th to 11th-grade students (and parents) interested in pursuing an appointment to one of the Nation’s Service Academies and/or NROTC/ROTC Scholarship. All welcome!

Where: Tidewater Community College (Student Center), 1700 College Crescent, Virginia Beach, VA 23453

Program: Presentations by representatives starting at 10:00 AM, followed by individual questions and answers.

Presenters: Representation from Congressional Offices, Service Academies, and ROTC units.


Each of these schools has a rich history and have graduated distinguished leaders such as Dwight Eisenhower, H. Norman Schwarzkopf, James Earl “Jimmy” Carter, and Robert Kiyosaki—just to name a few.  All of the Academies offer a full scholarship for all of their students (valued at an average of $400k per student).
