Graduation may be a year or two away, but during the sophomore and junior year is the time to explore and gather information on the military academies and ROTC programs if you are interested in acquiring an education in this manner. Tuition is provided for a student willing to serve a certain number of years (depending on which branch of the military) after graduation from a military academy or the ROTC program. Applications and letter of recommendations will need to be completed by September of the senior year with testing and interviews to follow. The process is quite involved, please call a school counselor at 859.525.5844 for more information on the academies or the process. We advise you to see a school counselor before applying to any military program.
