Academy Service Day

Cadaets with Guthrie


Each year, Congressman Brett Guthrie’s office conducts a Service Academy Information Day for all interested students and their parents who are interested in receiving more information on the various United States Service Academies.  Academy Day is designed to help make the nomination and appointment application processes clearer and easier.

There is also a question and answer session, as well as information available for the students on each of the academies listed above.
