Hall of Fame

Cadet candidates during the Preparatory School Graduation Parade

We take pride in the accomplishments of our graduates, especially those with significant achievements during their careers in the Air Force, the Department of Defense, or in service to our nation.

Graduates of the Preparatory School, as well as current and former U.S. Air Force Academy staff, can nominate individuals to be inducted into the Hall of Fame annually. We formally select, recognize, and celebrate our inductees as part of the Preparatory School graduation week schedule of events. Plaques are placed on permanent display in the Hall of Fame which is showcased in the dining facility.

For details on eligibility or instructions on the nomination process, please email the Preparatory School at prepinfo@usafa.edu.
