Kiski boys are frequently interested in applying to the service academies of the United States: United States Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs, CO; United States Merchant Marine Academy, Kings Point, NY; United States Military Academy, West Point, NY; United States Naval Academy, Annapolis, MD. The United States Coast Guard Academy, New London, CT, does not follow the same application and appointment process followed by the other academies. In addition to the academies, Kisk boys may also research the different ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corps) opportunities. The appointment process should begin no later than January or February of the junior year because there is much to be done. If you are interested in the service academies, contact a College Counselor.
