Help students take their fighting spirit to the next level. Nominate them today for a chance to become a Semper Fidelis All-American. TheSemper Fidelis All-American Program, presented by the United States Marine Corps, recognizes elite high school juniors who face life’s battles with the determination to succeed. As a celebration of their success, selected Semper Fidelis All-Americans will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to attend the exclusive Battles Won Academy in Washington, DC, occurring July 13–17, 2017. Students will participate in an immersive Marine Corps experience, take part in teambuilding outings, hear from an elite group of speakers, and get a behind-the-scenes tour of the nation’s capital. In recognition of the importance of building a support system to enable the success of the next generation, each All-American will have an opportunity to invite a mentor to attend the event with him or her. Additionally, becoming a Semper Fidelis All-American will make students eligible for select scholarship opportunities available only to program participants.
