How do I get on base to access Air Academy High School?

All parents of AAHS students will need to get a DBIDs (Defense Biometric Identification System) card to gain access to the Air Force Academy. You will need to go to the Pass and Registration Office (located on the right side of the road, just before you get to the South gate entrance on N. Academy Blvd). It is the glass building with a large flagpole in the front.
Their hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 3:45 p.m. They are closed all federal holidays. They will run a quick background check and take your picture. Note: This process could take upwards of 30 minutes to complete.

You will need the following documents:
· Car registration
· Driver’s license
· Proof of car insurance

Your DBIDS card allows you entry onto the base; it also allows you to bring your student and their siblings onto the base. Your DBIDS does not allow you to bring guests to the Air Force Academy. You may enter the Air Force Academy through either North or South gate with a DBIDS card.

Dates and times can change on short notice, for more information, please see:
