Leadership Development

Real Life Leadership Labs

To support our mission, every cadet receives instruction in Leadership Development following the curriculum set forth by the Department of the Army as a part of JROTC: This instruction is put into practice throughout a cadet's tenure at NYMA. As a cadet demonstrate the ability for positions of higher rank and more responsibility he or she is given those opportunities for leadership in the Corps of Cadets and the responsibility of the well-being of its members. In fact, this instruction is incorporated into what NYMA calls its Cadet Performance System, which guides cadets in every facet of life in order that they know what is expected of them.

Because cadets are trained to know exactly what is expected of them at all times under the Cadet Performance System, a system which defines what excellent performance is and then measures it, they are able to achieve success and move up in rank. They know there is a daily path they can choose to take; they know what to wear as they walk that path, how to behave, what responsibilities they have, and this knowledge and its proper execution puts them on track for success. This is very different from other private schools or public schools where expectations are not clearly delineated.

Cadets are permitted to wear emblems of distinction on their uniforms in recognition of superior achievement in scholastic, military, and athletic endeavors. Most importantly, NYMA truly has a real life leadership lab: it is in applying the lessons learned in class to daily cadet life that the cadets truly put into practice what they have been taught.
