On Thursday, Christ the King Senior Julianna Laguna took The Candidate Fitness Assessment. The Candidate Fitness Assessment (CFA) was developed to measure and evaluate a candidate's potential to successfully complete the physical programs at the United States Naval Academy, United States Air Force Academy, and United States Military Academy.
The CFA consists of six physical and motor fitness events that are designed to measure muscular strength and endurance, cardio-respiratory endurance, power, balance, and agility. When administered together as a single battery, these six events will help the Admissions Board determine if a candidate possesses the stamina and movement skills required to successfully complete the physical program and perform the duties required of commissioned officers in the uniformed services.
The six test events of the CFA are administered consecutively in less than a 40-minute time period. The CFA is an important component of the admissions process at each Service Academy and is used to determine if candidates can meet the physical rigors of military life. The test must be administered properly and standardized in order to accurately reflect a student's physical and motor fitness and to be fair to all candidates.
Julianna is applying to the United States Military Academy at West Point.
Good Luck Julianna!
