A college experience like no other – striving for a superior academic, military, and athletic experience in a close-knit environment.

Home / Cadet Life
The Coast Guard Academy is unlike a civilian college. As a cadet, you’ll engage in a total, integrated experience that will challenge your mind, body and character – and provide rewards that last a lifetime.

At one of the nation’s top colleges, you’ll receive an elite, professional education. You’ll participate in competitive sports (a requirement for every cadet). And, on a residential military campus, your experience will be highly structured and driven by shared commitments to honor, respect and service above self.
