Crescent Springs, KY 
- Each year, Members of Congress have the privilege of nominating exceptional young individuals to receive an appointment for admission to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Air Force Academy, and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, known collectively as the U.S. Service Academies.

The U.S. Service Academies offer a unique opportunity for motivated young men and women to serve their country while improving all facets of their character through a rigorous scholastic curriculum and a disciplined moral and physical regimen. In lieu of tuition, the Academies require military service after graduation.  Cadets and Midshipmen graduate as Officers in the United States Military, and many have gone on to be great leaders in our nation’s history.

Competition for the limited number of opportunities is extremely high.  Nominees are chosen based on several factors including character, leadership, academic excellence, physical aptitude, and extracurricular activities. An interview panel of academy graduates, officers, and academy liaisons from all branches of the military evaluate applicants and will make recommendations on who will receive a nomination.

The deadline to submit an application for nomination is Monday, October 17th, 2022. Applications must be received at Congressman Massie's Northern Kentucky office by 5:00 p.m. that day.

To apply, please request a U.S. Service Academy Nomination Application from Congressman Massie's Northern Kentucky Office:
