Cadet for a Day is a two-day/overnight program that provides you the opportunity to join other HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS and ATHLETES as you shadow a cadet and explore the many opportunities available at the Academy and within the Coast Guard. Attend classes and a team practice, eat in the cadet wardroom, and learn what cadet life is like first-hand. Students will also have the opportunity to complete an optional Physical Fitness Exam (PFE). 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.

At this time, students attending the program will be housed overnight on campus in Chase Hall.

Programming and information for parents will also be provided throughout the day including, but not limited to, informational presentations, meal(s) with Admissions Staff, and a Cadet-led campus tour. Parent participation is optional, and any attending parents/guests will need to make their own overnight arrangements if attending both days of the program.
