Academic excellence is the top priority of the Corps of Cadets. We offer scholastic consulting, supplemental instruction, cadet-led support programs as well as access to state-of-the-art academic facilities. The Corps provides a structured, disciplined, environment conducive to academic excellence, including mandatory study periods five days per week and the maintenance of quiet hours in the dorms to facilitate academic study.
The Academic Day
During the academic day, cadets attend classes, study, and see to their personal business. Freshman and sophomore cadets also have a study period called “Evening Study Time” which is a mandatory multi-hour period on Sunday through Thursday evenings. This time is dedicated to studying, projects, group work, supplemental instruction, and test reviews.
Dedicated Scholastic Staff
There are three-full-time Scholastic Performance Specialists on the Commandant’s staff who provide tailored academic advice and mentoring to all cadets no matter their major. They provide instruction for coping with college academics. There are numerous mentoring and academic support programs within the Corps which provide academic assistance to our cadets.
