Strategic Statement and Ethos

Cadets respect the culture and religious beliefs of others and possess the poise and confidence to express their views with vigor and forethought. They understand history, science, mathematics, and communicate the written word. The faculty and staff realize that it is insufficient to educate the mind. They must also educate the heart, soul, and spirit.
