USAFA Prep School

Each year HQ CAP submits recommendations to the U.S. Air Force Academy for one cadet to attend the Academy’s Preparatory School. The Prep School's one-year program (valued at over $32,500) greatly increases a student's potential for admission to the Academy.  It is a fantastic opportunity for cadets who might not otherwise qualify for appointment to the Academy

Applicants must first apply directly to the USAFA using the USAFA Application for Admission, available at www.academyadmissions.com.  

Cadets must request the application by 31 December of their senior year. USAFA must receive the completed application by 31 January.
