Service Academies

From year to year Loyola students seek admission to one or more of our U.S. Service Academies. These include West Point, U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy, The Merchant Marines Academy, and the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. Qualifications for admissions are high and the application process is rigorous. Because of this, those students interested must begin the process at the beginning of their junior year.
