USCG Aim High Academy

Proudly Presented by the U.S. Coast Guard

Summer 2022 Scholarship Now Available

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.

We’re excited to announce the US Coast Guard is partnering with OBAP to offer 15 scholarships for students to attend their 2022 AIM Academy. The scholarship allows your child to attend the program for FREE! This is a $750 value per student. This event is open to students 16 to 18 years old. Applications must be received by April 10, 2022.
