Bears Day #5 2024

Description: Bears Day is a program for high school Juniors and Seniors interested in learning more about the Academy experience, specifically academics, military instruction, and cadet life through an admissions brief, campus tour, lunch in the cadet wardroom, and a class audit.

This is an opportunity to shadow a cadet and join other high school students to see first-hand what a typical day at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy is like. By the end of this experience, students will be well prepared to make a decision to apply and potentially attend the Academy if offered an appointment.

Programming and information for parents will also be provided throughout the day including, but not limited to, informational presentations, lunch with Admissions Staff, and a Cadet-led campus tour. Please note that each student is only authorized to bring a maximum of TWO guests.
