AIM Summer Program

The Academy Introduction Mission (AIM) is a one-week summer program where you'll immerse yourself in Academy life. Exclusively for students entering their senior year of high school, AIM is regarded as the most realistic of the service academy summer orientation programs.

AIM will test and inspire you. It will push you to your limits. You'll rise early. You'll study. You'll compete. For six non-stop days, you'll test your mind, body and spirit in every way.

Intense, yet rewarding, AIM will help you to discover whether the Academy experience is truly what you want from college, and whether you have what it takes to succeed.

2021 Session Dates

I: 5 - 9 July

"I learned at AIM that, with will and determination, anything can be accomplished. I now see how physical and mental fortitude are key to becoming successful." - Dante, Texas
