The title of United States Marine is earned, never given. The same is true of a Semper-Fidelis All-American. Becoming an All-American puts you in elite company and allows opportunities that will open the doors to future success. Proudly presented by the United States Marine Corps, the Semper Fidelis All-American Program recognizes high school students who face life’s battles with the conviction and determination to succeed. These students embody the same fighting spirit that Marines stand for by taking on the challenges of succeeding academically while bettering their communities and excelling in athletics and extracurricular activities. They have turned obstacles into victories through drive and passion and will be recognized for their achievements at the exclusive Battles Won Academy.

Semper Fidelis All-American Program Details:

As a celebration of their success, selected Semper Fidelis All-Americans will receive an all-expenses paid trip to attend the Battles Won Academy, held in Washington D.C. July 13 - 17, 2017. There they will participate in an immersive Marine Corps experience, teambuilding outings and sporting events and behind-the-scenes tours of our Nation’s Capital.  The selected Semper Fidelis All-Americans will also have the opportunity to network with an elite circle of speakers from all walks of life and various industries who will share their inspiring stories of fighting and winning battles in their own lives. In recognition of the importance of building a support system to enable the success of the next generation, each All-American will be given the opportunity to invite a mentor to attend the event as well. Finally, becoming a Semper Fidelis-All American will make students eligible for select scholarship opportunities only available to program participants.

Students must meet these minimum requirements for nomination:
  • Be a Junior in High School
  • Have a 3.5 or higher GPA on a 4.0 scale, or equivalent
  • Be active in community service
  • Play a competitive team sport
  • Hold a student or community leadership position

Students will be selected for the program based on moral character and academic performance in addition to athletic abilities. Most critically, nominees must demonstrate a fighting spirit that improves the lives of their fellow citizens.
