MARINES SEMPER FIDELIS ALL-AMERICAN PROGRAM!
The Semper Fidelis All-American Program is a new honorary high school program that recognizes high school juniors from across the country who excel academically, athletically and within their communities. Selected students will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C. to attend the Battles Won Academy with a mentor of their choice.
The program provides the exclusive opportunity for these like-minded student athletes to win a scholarship, tour the nation’s capital, hear from industry professionals, visit the Marine Corps base in Quantico and network with one another. In addition, being honored as a Semper Fidelis All-American is a great resume builder and will get acknowledged amongst colleges.
During the Inaugural Battles Won Academy, students participated in the Fit Olympics at Under Armour’s World Headquarters, received a private tour at the Marine Corps base in Quantico, VA, had a scavenger hunt throughout the National Mall and attended a Baltimore Oriole’s game where they had a meet-and-greet with Cal Ripken Jr. They also heard from guest speakers such as Christian McCaffrey of the Carolina Panthers, Carli Lloyd of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team, World Champion Wrestler Adeline Gray, in addition to our banquet host, Sage Steele of ESPN.
Student athletes who fit the description of a Semper Fidelis All-American can complete their application at https://sfaap.marines.com/. Students can nominate themselves or be nominated for this prestigious honor. Please note the application is only a single page and should take no longer than 10-15 minutes to complete.
