A very unique place to visit. The best part of this is the multi level church with Protestant church, Catholic Church, Jewish synagogue, Buddhist temple all in four different level. I was amazed by the gigantic air piano in the Protestant church.

I have a high school senior. He's not really interested in the military, but I wanted to make sure he saw this academy as an option. Loved the film at the visitors center and the chapel is worth the trip. Never seen anything like it....More

If you are in the area, do take the time to stop by. The cathedral is especially amazing. Great to see the cadets marching as well.
