AIM Summer Program

AIM Online Application

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.

2019 Session Dates (Sunday through Friday)

I: 7-12 July

II: 14-19 July

III: 21-26 July
