As a military boarding school for boys, we know that a highly organized daily schedule can make the difference between success and failure in middle school and high school. After classes end, cadets receive individualized academic attention through tutorials and study hall. They participate in elite sports teams and group fitness training. There’s plenty of time for fun at our recreation hall and private beachfront.
