My son/daughter is interested in a military career and wants to attend military school now.
The most appropriate time to choose a military school for your son or daughter is when he or she has expressed an interest in this type of educational opportunity. If your teen has expressed an interest in a military career, military school can improve their chances of being admitted to a military college such as WestPoint or Annapolis.
Military schools offer teens the opportunity to get early training to prepare them for a military career. There are also Junior ROTC programs available at many high schools if your teen does not want to go away to military school.
Many of the top military high schools offer both days schools and residential boarding school programs. You can search for military schools by state to see if a school is close enough to you for the day school option to be feasible.
Turn-About Ranch is a working cattle ranch with programs for troubled teens that differs from typical residential treatment centers for troubled teens because it values action not just talk. The Ranch takes defiant teens out of their comfort zone and gets them excited about the natural environment, learning, and their physical and mental capabilities. They learn that, in the real world, rewards come through dedication and hard work. Turn-About Ranch has been featured in several European television series, including Brat Camp.
