U.S. Air Force Academy ranks among top colleges in nation

U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. — The U.S. Air Force Academy is ranked as one of the top universities in the nation with the latest rankings from Forbes.

Forbes released its annual best college rankings July 24, listing the Academy as the 31st best university in the nation. The U.S. Military Academy ranked 7th and the U.S. Naval Academy came in at 28th in the nation.

“The U.S. service academies all scored well in the Forbes list alongside some very impressive schools,” said Brig. Gen. Andrew Armacost, the Academy’s dean of the faculty. “I think that’s a great testament to the kind of students and faculty we draw to the military academies. We continue to focus on offering our students a world-class education that is combined with leadership development unmatched on the planet.”

The top-ranked school is Stanford University, with Pomona College coming in second and Princeton University ranking third.

The rankings are calculated by Forbes and the Washington, D.C.-based Center for College Affordability and Productivity and are based on a numerical formula which assesses each school in the following categories: post-graduate success, student satisfaction, student debt, four-year graduation rates and competitive awards.
