Top Military Schools: What Should You Look For?

Updated on June 12, 2010

There are certain factors that you need to consider before choosing the right military school that can hone your son or daughter into the model citizen that top military schools usually produce.  Here are some of those important characteristics:

The Curriculum

You should first consider the curriculum.  If you think that the curriculum of the top military schools would best suit your child as an individual, then it would be best to enroll your child in such a school.  One thing to consider while looking at the curriculum of the school is the method of teaching.  You can ask about this from other students who have graduated from any of the top military schools in America.

The Environment

The environment consists of many factors and some of those factors are as follows:


  • This is the most important environmental factor that you should consider when looking over top military schools.  Are the people in the school respectful towards the students as well as the parents?  Are they able to comply the needs of the students as far as education and training is concerned?  Are the students in the school friendly with their classmates?  These are some of the questions that you need to know if you want to enroll your child in military school.


  • Some of the top military schools focused not only on military training but other venues as well.  Some top military schools have sports programs that allow the students to explore their own skills in the field.  Other top military schools for girls also focus on the nested activities such as cooking and other home economic fields that they can use to help care for their future families.
  • Aside from this, we can never forget the physical training that the students undergo when in military school.  This will help develop their endurance as well as their strength of character and wisdom.
  • Another thing that you have to consider is your child's own preparedness and willingness to join the military.  If he or she is not prepared to enter top military schools, then your efforts to prepare her for this endeavor will be futile.  You have to make sure that everything is according to what your child wants to do with his life. 

If you force him, you would just be wasting time and your child will eventually drop out of school. So it is better to let him take his own decision.

Be sure to ask him first before trying to convince him of going into the military.  If your child really wants to go, he will be the one to decide for himself.  If he does this on his own, it will be an easier ride for him inside the top military schools.

One of the reasons of why some students do not find it very fulfilling to enter top military schools is because they do not have the heart for it and they are not mentally prepared for it. So, it is better not to force them.
