Today, we welcomed New Cadets and PG Basketball cadets to campus for our third check-in of the academic year! We had a very successful day and I am sure all parents received a wealth of knowledge, but I wanted to make sure everyone had access to the Commandant's Parents Brief that LTC Tony Moss ran this morning along with a few helpful links to start a successful year. 

Below you will find helpful information, including video from today's parent meeting.
