The United States Marine Corps proudly presents the Semper Fidelis All-American Program to recognize elite high school juniors who face life’s battles with the determination to succeed. These students embody a fighting spirit, much like the fighting spirit of a United States Marine, by taking on the challenges of succeeding academically while excelling in athletics and bettering their communities.
As a reward for turning obstacles into achievements, the Marines will select 96 students nationwide to earn the title Semper Fidelis All-American and attend the exclusive Battles Won Academy in Washington, D.C. from July 12th-16th, 2018 with a mentor of their choosing. The Battles Won Academy experience includes:
- An all-expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C. for the selected All-American and a mentor of their choice
- The chance to win scholarship funding for college
- Behind-the-scenes tours of our Nation’s Capital
- An immersive Marine Corps experience
- Teambuilding outings and sporting events
- Networking opportunities with our nation’s civic, athletic and military leaders
