What Students Are Saying

3.71 Average Rating
It's a challenge, but there is a reward for every challenge you face. It's not meant to be easy, it is meant to help you grow. Here, you discover that you can do so much more than you thought you could.
Kathryn from USAF Academy, CO
This school is not for everyone, however it is definitely worth it. There is a lot of commitment when it comes to joining this academy; you lose more time with friends and family than a student at a normal college, and the academics are quite tough because they are more science based. Overall, a lot of memories are made at this school and although the everyday stresses can get you down sometimes, it is a full scholarship that offers you a full time job when you get out.
