The Idaho Congressional Delegation is hosting a series of Academy Days to inform high school students about the opportunities at the U.S. Service Academies.  A total of seven events will be held across the state. Students and their parents can attend an event in the following cities: Boise, McCall, Twin Falls, Coeur d’Alene, Soda Springs, Idaho Falls, and Lewiston.

Service Academies offer high school graduates several opportunities beyond serving their country. Students will obtain a first-rate undergraduate education, a job upon graduation, and the ability to purse advance degrees all while receiving tuition, room and board, healthcare and a monthly salary.
