Acceptance Day Parade Class of 2026 - Part 2

According to the USAFA website, Acceptance Day occurs once the Basic Cadet passes Basic Cadet Training (BCT). This takes place prior to the start of the academic year and is celebrated with a parade.

During the ceremony, basic cadets are accepted into the Cadet Wing, become fourth-class cadets and are placed into their academic year Cadet Squadron.

After the Parade, family members were able to see their Cadets for the first time since In-Processing Day. Some families brought food and had picnics with their Cadets.

Additionally, upperclassmen also had their own picnics and barbeques near Vandenberg Hall.
