Parents choose military schools for good kids who are high achievers wanting to learn discipline, leadership, and excel in academics.
A private school with a military component pushes high achievers higher and helps kids who want to excel and be fully prepared for college. The best military academies provide a well-rounded, college prep program that includes athletics and fitness. Also, additional work in military leadership, history, and world culture is enforced.
The structure military schools offer equips students to get organized, introduces them to time management, and offers rewarding opportunities. It disciplines them to be motivated and productive which helps students gain skills necessary for a successful life.
Military schools offer a strong curriculum in which students develop critical thinking skills. Some schools that offer strategic academics have a curriculum that focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) for emerging careers in high demand. Also, military schools encourage students to live an active lifestyle by being involved in many athletic and extracurricular programs. Some programs offered in military schools include Drill instruction, which is also a form of physical education and discipline.
Students in a military school are offered opportunities to hone their leadership abilities through a well-rounded framework that you don’t find in most private schools. Through programs such as the NJROTC, students are given tools to become organized, accountable, respectful to self and others, and learn what it takes to be a leader. At Admiral Farragut Academy all high school students are required to participate in the NJROTC program to study and learn all aspects of Naval Science.
If your child is already the kind of kid who is involved and excels academically, military school will tap into his/her full potential and will give him/her the tools to make the most out of education!
