The United State Coast Guard Academy is located in New London, Connecticut. All graduates go to school tuition-free and in return they serve in the US Coast Guard for five years. It is listed as #1 in Top Public Schools by U.S. News & World Report and rated as having a “more selective” admissions process. It is the only military academy overseen by the Department of Homeland Security.
The Coast Guard Academy is a highly competitive school, both academically and militarily. I have been faced with my hardest challenges here. I would make the choice to come here a thousand times over.

The Coast Guard Academy is not for the faint of heart. It is emotionally, physically, and mentally tough, but that means it will make you emotionally, physically, and mentally tougher. Despite the difficulty, I would't want to be anywhere else because this school takes me to amazing places and will continue to provide me with spectacular opportunities well after I graduate.
