Join staff members from the office of U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson for the annual U.S. Service Academy Information Forum. The forum is open to students and parents interested in learning about the U.S. Service Academies. Young men and women 17 to 22 years of age who are residents of Texas' Third Congressional District and will be a high school graduate by July 1, 2019 are eligible to apply this year.
This event is a valuable opportunity to learn more about the selection process and application requirements to attend an academy. Nomination and evaluation procedures will be explained, and representatives with the Military, Naval, Air Force and Merchant Marine academies will be present. Afterwards, we will have break-out sessions for students and parents to meet with academy representatives and learn more about life at the various academies.
