United States Military Academy
The United States Military Academy, located in West Point, New York, was founded in 1802. The school is the oldest of the country’s five federal service academies. Students, referred to as cadets, are officers in training, and their tuitions are funded by the U.S. Army in return for an active-service duty obligation. Army graduates earn a Bachelor of Science degree and are commissioned as second lieutenants in the U.S. Army. Applicants must apply directly to the academy and receive a nomination from a congressional representative. The school heavily focuses on its Engineering, Biology, Chemistry, Civil Engineering, Computer and Information Systems, and Environmental Engineering programs.
