Our Mission

We are committed to:

  • Supporting students (and their families) who are attending a service academy/military college or who are enrolled in an ROTC program at one of Tennessee’s designated colleges or universities.
  • Assisting our nation’s service academies in their efforts to identify and recruit students interested in a military education.
  • Educating the community about our nation’s young men and women who have chosen this path of education and military service.
  • Fundraising for veterans and military-based charitable organizations that include Wounded Warriors Project (WWP) and Operation Stand Down TN.  

Events    

The Tennessee All Academy Parents Club hosts a variety of yearly events to both support our Service Academy/ROTC students and to raise financial support for designated charities.  These events range from packing boodle boxes (care packages) for our students to raise their spirits during challenging times, organizing gatherings (Over the Hump and Army/Navy parties) for students’ families and hosting our annual gala/fundraising event: the Tennessee All Academy & ROTC Ball where we recognize and honor those young Tennesseans who are pursuing collegiate military leadership training.


We look forward to the annual opportunity to celebrate and salute these young men and women.

Our Premiere Annual Event

The Tennessee All Academy & ROTC Ball is typically held on the last Friday of December.  The ball allows us to honor our cadets, midshipmen and airmen for their accomplishments and commitment to serving our country.  Fundraising proceeds from this event are donated to military-based charities.
