Who should be your primary point of contact?

One of the big questions most parents have is, "Who do I call if I have questions about my son?"

Your primary point of contact for most questions will by your son's TAC Officer. This is the adult who supervises the cadets in each of our cadet companies.

For questions about academics, you will also be in contact with your son's teacher.

You can follow your son's academic progress through our PowerSchool Parent Portal, which you can access at:

Phones and emails are not turned on yet

The Commandant will decide when the phones in each cadets' barracks rooms will be turned on so you can easily communicate with your cadet by telephone. We will keep you posted as to when that will take place. We usually give the young men a couple of weeks at least to get acclimated and connected to new friends and support systems here on campus, as we have learned through the years that this helps combat those initial feelings of homesickness.

Sending mail and care packages from home

Our young men love receiving care packages from home almost as much as their families enjoy putting them together for them, especially when phones and emails are turned off. For any mail or packages you wish to send to your cadet, can be sent to the following address and will be distributed during mail call time throughout the day.

Address for Cadet Mail (Letters, Envelopes, Magazines, etc.)

Cadet *First Name* *Last Name*
