Time is one of the most precious resources a student has, shaping the outcome of academic and career success. Fortunately, the unique opportunities offered to an Army and Navy Academy Cadet begin to shape skills and habits that will stay with him for the remainder of his life.
Perhaps the most crucial steps in time management involve establishing goals and following a schedule. In military school, that schedule is carefully laid out for students and designed to give them the best possible results from their education.
For instance, the Academy’s rigorous daily schedule, including after-school tutorial, office hours, and mandatory study time, offer a supportive environment intended to help students achieve their full potential.
The more Cadets are exposed to this disciplined routine, the more they learn to manage time on their own. The military school time management environment helps students to:
- Prioritize tasks
- Be realistic about their abilities and needs
- Procrastinate less
- Be more productive
- Track progress according to a schedule
- Plan for long-term goals
The Academy’s daily schedules are designed to help students get the most out of their learning experience – see the daily schedule for boarding Cadets here, and the daily schedule for day Cadets here.
Good time management allows Cadets to accomplish more in shorter spaces of time, allowing them to focus on achieving their goals, and there’s no better environment than a military school to help students master the skill.
