Military Links & Academy Websites
For those who want to serve our country and earn a highly regarded four year degree, the military or service academies are worth a look. Getting in is highly competitive, but the entire cost, including tuition, room and board, is paid for by the U.S. government. Military academy representatives will visit Potomac Falls several times throughout the year to meet with students (see the College Visits page). If your child is interested, check out these web sites for additional information.
