Although there can be some cadets that don’t fit the profile, most military school cadets are self-motivated and obedient. Many of them are also seeking military jobs (typically as officers), and are good students as well. Many military schools offer either boarding school or stay at home enrolment. Most of the more reputable military schools have been established for long periods of time, So if your son fits the above profile and is looking to enroll at a traditional military school, it would be wise to find out how long the school has been in operation for.
Furthermore most of these more reputable military schools are deeply rooted in tradition, thus further enhancing the cadet's learning and experience. Your son or daughter will become a cadet and their whole life will change for the better. They will learn much more than just discipline, order and structured work. Contrary to popular belief, they will also learn to be independent and to think for themselves under any circumstances. Far from becoming “robots”, they will become sensible individuals who care for their loved ones and the community.
