Hi all, I am an appointee to the class of 2021 and I'm trying to help spread the word about academies to younger generations at my school. I was not aware of USNA until I was invited to NASS last summer, where I fell in love with it. I am also the first kid in many years to even apply to any academy. What I'm asking is how other people became aware of service academies and how I could help my school be more informed? Thanks!
RedRock, like you I never heard of the Naval Academy until last June, when I received an email from them and I checked off some activities and gave them test schores. I live in an area that is somewhat affluent(Westchester County, NY) where many of the parents/kids only care about Ivy Leagues and the big name schools. I was asked by the college career counselor to explain to her the process of applying to a WP, USNA, etc. I thought that was her job since she gets paid for it. Anyway, try and have the college counselor invite a BGO to your school to speak with students.
