In the United States of America, military schools for teens have existed for over a century. America’s military school tradition is unrivalled, and our country’s military splendour owes them a tribute of respect. In many other developed countries military schools simply do not exist as an option for teens. There are basically two kinds of people seeking for a military school: the teens themselves and their parents.
Our answer to young men and women
There are many potential reasons why you would rather study in a military school as a cadet. Let us focus on a few of them:
You have recently moved to another town and you find the school environment unfriendly. A military school will certainly provide a higher level of comradeship from the very start.
You like military values and life (perhaps you come from a military family). A military school is the perfect choice for you. It will allow you to get military jobs if you wish to do so.
Our answer to parents
A military school is often described as an exhaustingly hard environment where kids are exposed to dangerous activities and extremely severe discipline. Now, that’s completely wrong. A military school is, first of all, a school. They are among the most prestigious academic institutions in America and they deliver highly skilled and cultivated young men and women who are likelier than others to succeed in life, whether they choose a university or military career or any other option. Also, the good values learnt will always accompany and help them.
Your children will be subject to a stronger discipline but any abuse is forbidden and strongly punished. Their environment will be safer and the friends they make will be the ones you wish they had. Their academic and sports skills will also improve very fast. Most teens who were reluctant or scared at the beginning felt at home after a just couple of months in their military school. There are special circumstances that might make you consider a military school for your son or daughter:
Your teen shows a special admiration for military life and would be happy to join a military school.
He or she is failing in an ordinary school for lack of guidance and discipline.
