Q. What is the official USAA National Yearbook?
A. The yearbook is a permanent family treasure future generations will admire. The yearbook contains a listing of outstanding students who meet the criteria for inclusion. It features student’s name, the nominating teacher, school name, school city and state, awards, and activities.

Can we acquire a personal copy of the yearbook?
A. Yes. A registration and order request is available on the Student Biography form. The yearbook is yours at a preferred rate. If you order a yearbook, you also will get a commemorative certificate, suitable for framing.

Q. Is it possible to have a page personalized for my child?
A. Yes. The personalized page appears in the front pages of the yearbook. It features the student’s color picture (if submitted), student’s name, school name, the nominating educator, city and state, awards and activities, parents’ names and the names of grandparents.

Q. Is there a charge for inclusion in the official USAA National Yearbook?
A. No. This is an honor, and inclusion is free of charge. Purchase of the yearbook is strictly voluntary.

Q. What should we do to be sure of inclusion?
A. Complete the student biography form that you will receive in the mail, and return it to USAA, 2610 Palumbo Drive, Lexington, KY 40509.

Does the Academy print our address and phone number with the listing?
A. No. The Academy protects your privacy. Each listing includes student name, the nominating educator, school, school’s city and state, and achievements for which the student has been nominated.

Q. How does USAA protect student privacy?
A. We do not sell student information to anyone. Student information is not shared with any entity. All personal information is kept private. (Personal information is considered as home addresses, email addresses, and phone numbers.)

Q. If we don’t fill out and mail the student biography form, will my child’s name still appear in the national yearbook?
A. Sorry, no. Without parental permission, a nominee’s name cannot be included.

When are the yearbooks mailed?
A. Mid to late december.

Why do i have to wait so long to receive my yearbook?
A. Teachers nominate students throughout the entire school year. We collect this information, send the appropriate packets to the students, and wait for students to send their information back to us. Then, we begin the book publishing process. Final edits for the yearbook take place during the summer months. The yearbooks go to press at the end of October, and the books are mailed to the students’ home addresses in mid to late December.
