SOUTH JORDAN, Utah (AP) - One high school in a Salt Lake City suburb will be sending five students to military academies this fall.

The Deseret News reports (https://bit.ly/1qjadc0 ) that five members of South Jordan’s Bingham High School’s Class of 2016 are planning to attend a U.S. service academy. Each made it through a grueling selection process that requires the recommendation of a congressional representative and meeting strict academic and physical standards.

Three Bingham students will go to the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado; one will attend the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland; and one will attend the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in New York.

Students don’t pay tuition or houses expenses while attending the academies in exchange for five years of active duty military service after graduation.
