The Basic Course taken during the Freshman and Sophomore years is designed to introduce students to the Army. A variety of subjects such as first aid, land navigation and military history are covered. Junior and Senior students participate in Advanced Course classes and focus on leadership, Army doctrine, and the transition from student/cadet to Lieutenant. All students participate in a leadership laboratory one day per week. Completion of a six-week summer camp, usually between the junior and senior years, is required.
