Cadet at a Military School for troubled teens

Cadet Life

As you might expect, life in a military school is highly disciplined and strict. Teenagers who are used to doing whatever they like with little or no supervision will have a hard time getting used to the regimented and strenuous schedule of a military school.

From their very first day onwards, cadets are required to perform regular and vigorous physical exercises for fitness as well as for discipline. Becoming physically fit helps each cadet learn to work hard and respect his body. Many military programs also enforce a strict diet to reinforce the goals of health and fitness.

Cadets wake up early and work hard every day, whether on service projects, physical education, or academics. There is no room for disobedience. The tight schedule of military life helps each cadet develop a good work ethic, determination, and endurance.
