There are more and more parents looking for military schools for girls, but there is still a big difference when you compare it with boys. To some parents, it’s too much to handle their daughter going to a military school.

But this way of thinking is really against modern times. Young and independent woman choose to go to the Military Academy because they want to go to the military one day and end up having quality careers. These military schools are producing outstanding students by offering the highest available academic standards and give the girls an excellent opportunity to be accepted in the army.
They will learn the value of discipline, respect and it’s a good preparation for the real world.

That is why the Military Academy is also good for teenagers that have behaviour problems: the structure and discipline help the students to rediscover themselves and get them back on the right track.

Of course it’s never easy to send your child away, sometimes against their will. Furthermore, you don’t know if it’s the best decision or not. Maybe the answer comes years later, if it ever comes. Only you can make the choice and pray it is for the best.

Right now the recession is imposing on choices of parents about the future of their children, which is not always the best.

Lost in a bare-hands battle against the financial crisis, parents now have to fight for the costly education of their children. How can you pay for a good education when this spending is beyond your last resources?

New York Military School is about to close this spring because of the economy crisis that is hitting the parents. A debt of several millions has blocked the administration of the school.

The military school has been preparing students to high standards with the famous ideal phrase: “Educating tomorrow’s leaders today”. Over the years, this school had some of the most successful people who we know today as Donald Trump and Francis Ford Coppola. 121 years will pass in vain when its doors will close.

We can see the impact of the economic situation in the country, affecting not only the workers in losing their jobs, but even the educational institutions. A historic, pride of a nation’s army school is about to fall in that same battle we all face. How can a solid institution that seemed like a rock, can fall like a sand castle? We would hope that the pride of the graduated students who became leaders, would come to the rescue of this military school…

So facing tough economic decisions, parents have one more worry… As well as the trends of the stoke market, the standards of schools and universities are going down. Choices for good education are becoming less important….

Stanislaus Military Academy is an academy that helps juvenile offenders, teenagers that take drugs, are addicted to alcohol or hit their parents to find discipline and get back on the right track. It is a learning school for those who get sidetracked.

A few years ago, a teenager called Jonathan Gentry was such a kid. He lost track, took drugs, broke the law, … He said that he did never think about tomorrow. But after he went to the Military Academy, he turned his live around and is one of the top cadets. He found the structure and discipline he needed in the academy.

Because they combine the military discipline with education, they help students relate it to real-world situations. It prepares them for college, to go to the military or to start working. Stanislaus Military Academy is more than just education; it’s a lifestyle makeover with commitment, discipline, respect, courage and honor as core values.

But the academy is not just a way for parents to send their children to when they want to change their attitudes; it’s for students with real problems when it comes to education and behavior. Because the main priority stays focused on education.
