Elementary Military School Helps Change Lives of Youngsters

I always wanted to quote this common proverb every time a child’s learning is involved: “Train a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” So as young as your child is right now, he will need to be trained properly, and one of the recommended ways of letting kids grow and not depart from such knowledge is to let them go to elementary military schools.

In fairness to military school training, it has resulted to positive ones; I mean most cases. That’s why testimonials are made by most sites of military schools because they want to prove that they don’t just blabber; they show to the students with their parents how effective military school training is.

Check out the testimonials below and see how military schools in Virginia changed a child’s life.

“I understand that successful individuals and leaders are not born; they are developed and shaped through their environment and their interactions with those around them. To be a leader or a morally strong individual who can make decisions, one must have a solid academic background, positive role models and a structured environment with discipline, if needed.

My 12-year old son had none of the above when he started [in a military school]. He was in public school and wasn’t being challenged, and things were out of control. Against his wishes, I enrolled him in summer camp and after a few weeks, he didn’t want to leave. He returned to camp the following year, and then, made the choice to start school there.

My son will graduate from [the military school] soon and I am proud of him and all he has accomplished. He is not the same individual. He now has goals, confidence, respect for himself and others, integrity and the willingness to do what it takes to be the best he can be.”

Very inspiring, isn’t it? Here’s another one. Hope this serves as an inspiration to you to allow your own kids to go to military schools as well.

“My son was 12, unhappy at his current school and the Marine Corps emphasis at [military school] was a big draw to him. We decided to let him start school there the following year.

Today, he’s a senior and there have been no regrets; we would not change a thing. He’s learned several valuable life lessons such as accountability, not only for himself, but also for his fellow cadets, as well as effective leadership and time management skills.

Additionally, there is a strong mentorship on campus. The DIs and other key personnel become surrogate parents, a critical role and one that we value greatly. They see the ups and downs, resolve conflict, cheer him on when we can’t be there and tend to him in the middle of the night if he is sick. There is a trust and true bond that comes with this relationship. Our son has been at [the military school] for five years, and his admiration, trust, respect and love of these good men are making him the man he will become.”
