1. What is the CFA and why do you need to take it?

The CFA is an important part of the application process for 4 of the U.S. Service Academies. If you’re applying to USAFA, USNA, USMA, or USMMA, then this calculator is for you. This assessment itself is designed to evaluate your fitness and ability in a variety of areas, including strength, endurance, and speed.

The six events of the Candidate Fitness Assessment include:

  • basketball throw from a kneeling position
  • cadence pull-ups or flexed arm hang (female only)
  • shuttle run
  • modified sit-ups
  • push-ups
  • a one-mile run

In order to be accepted into a service academy, you’ll need to earn a passing score on the Candidate Fitness Assessment. Unfortunately, many don’t know what a passing score is. We’ve reverse-engineered scores to help you learn where your current score falls and if any of your events are considered individual event fails.
