Most high school students consider a number of career options following graduation. Very few, however, get the chance to actually experience one of those options before making such an important decision. The Military Leadership Academy, hosted by Freedom Alliance, provides high school students an opportunity to experience the military lifestyle while learning valuable leadership knowledge.
“The military is a viable and fulfilling career choice for many young Americans,” explained Tom Kilgannon, president, Freedom Alliance. “Students who are interested in an interactive opportunity to evaluate life in the Armed Forces should think about spending two weeks at the Military Leadership Academy.”
Cadets will participate in a program based on the curriculum of the U.S. Army. Physical training, tours of military bases, leadership simulations, land navigation, field tactics, urban warfare training, and a visit to Washington, DC are a few of the many activities included at the Academy.
The first class is July 4th – 17th; the second class is July 25th – August 7th. Both will be held at Fort Pickett, a National Guard Post in Blackstone, VA.
The Academy seeks motivated high school students who wish to challenge themselves to become stronger and more confident leaders. Students leave the program with a better appreciation for the military, leadership tools to be successful in life, and understand the value of serving something greater than oneself.
