Military boarding School!

<p>Hey guys you who are applying to military boarding school, are welcome to express and discuss your thoughts, I am thinking of applying to one military school, and I have applied to other regular boarding schools.</p>

<p>What schools are you applying to?</p>

<p>I am thinking about applying to Carson Long Military Institute. I have applied to CFS, and Westtown.</p>

<p>I have a question about military schools, in general, is it the student who wants to go there or is it the parents? It's always the parents in the movies.</p>

<p>Well in my case, I want to get fit and learn more responsibility.</p>

<p>I'm here for you bro... The best way to get fit is swimming</p>

<p>I actually swim on a swim team out of school... like i want to stay in shape always when I go to a boarding school.</p>

<p>i'm pretty sure that you can acquire responsbility and get fit at a regular boarding school.</p>

<p>We've visited Culver Academy and know kids that have gone there. Fantastic education, beautiful campus. Highly recommend the school. Turns out leaders. Has TONS of athletics and extracurricular activities, including an aviation program and polo.</p>

<p>I do agree, but this is "Military Training." I mean such as the technique of it; sorry for the information.</p>

<p>Bongo, join a swim club. But its alot of money. $1000-2000 a year, plus all the equipment. Joining a swim club is the best thing that happened to me. Crazy training. the 11 year olds can make varsity swim team in high school. </p>

<p>I have an addiction to food, and you can't get any more fit then name..herculez =]</p>

<p>Hey everyone,
are any of you familiar with Carson Long Military Institute?</p>

<p>I do swim on a swim club, sorry for the low information!</p>

<p>sorry, my bad. good luck with your school search. I'm done hijacking this post</p>

<p>a girl who went to my school a couple of years ago went to military school. actually she had to convince her parents to send her there. it was kind of funny because once she got accepted she started wearing military fatigue to school</p>


<p>I guess I am kind of like that, but not as much! :)</p>

<p>this is a stupid question, but in the movies military schools are always considered uber strict horrible places that nobody wants to be sent to. what are they really like? what kinds of schedules do they have?</p>

<p>I know a little about Culver Academy. It is just like any other prep school except it is a military system of leadership for the boys and they wear uniforms. The campus is beautiful, the schedule is the same as a "normal" prep school and they have the same kind of sports, etc.</p>

<p>New Mexico Military (Roger Staubach is a grad) and Culver are the class of the field. Culver has an incredible facility- looks like a college and DOES turn out leaders. They won't touch kids with discipline problems, so the old stereotypes don't apply. Same with New Mexico (Nemi). You screw up there and out you go.</p>

<p>If you have no military experience/history in your family, be might really dislike it. My son received a full ROTC scholarship and was thrilled. He lasted one year and immensely disliked the experience.</p>
