Cadet Life

Being a Member of the Corps

At the New York Military Academy cadets engage in a total experience that challenges their mind, body, and character — and provides rewards that last a lifetime.

In addition to a rigorous academic schedule, cadets participate in competitive sports (a requirement for every cadet). On a residential military campus, cadets experience a highly structured experience and together are driven by a shared commitment to honor, respect, and service.

A cadet’s life is highly structured with the day beginning at 6:00 a.m. After breakfast, cadets move into the academic day, which includes two lunches for social distancing and dedicated time for extra help from their instructors. After clubs, sports, and activities, student have an evening study period from 7:00-9:00 p.m. with available help from their teachers. A cadet’s day ends at 10:00 p.m. with lights out.
