Q: When will my order ship?
A: The Academy processes orders Monday through Friday, excluding Holidays. It is our objective to ship all orders within two business days after they are processed.

Q: How will my order be shipped to me?
A: The Academy uses FedEx for shipping orders over $100. Orders are sent using FedEx Ground, which can take 5-7 business days. Once your order has been processed you will be notified of the tracking number assigned to your order (if you have an e-mail address on file with the Academy). If your total order is $100 or under, your order will be shipped via USPS and no tracking number will be available.

Package Tracking: All items sent using FedEx are assigned a tracking number. When your order has shipped, you will receive an e-mail, provided that you have given the Academy an e-mail address, with the tracking number so you can track your shipment either at the FedEx website or by calling 800-463-3339.
