Welcome to the United States Coast Guard Academy

A Cause and a Purpose: Remembering Hurricane Katrina Video RetrospectiveThe U.S. Coast Guard Academy, the smallest of the five federal service academies, offers a prestigious higher education experience, with emphasis on leadership, integrity, physical fitness and professional development.

With all the honor and tradition of a military academy, the Academy sustains an impressive student-to-teacher ratio and is set on a picturesque waterfront campus creating a traditional small college feel.

Cadets here devote themselves to an honor concept and go directly into positions of leadership in the U.S. Coast Guard, one of the most admired organizations in the world, to work at sea, on land, in the air, and even in space, in selfless service to others.
