West Point is that The United States Military Academy located in West Point New York.

What comes to mind when you hear a parent say  “My child is going to West Point?”

Probably a sharp, disciplined young man (or woman) of character right?

It’s a tough school to get into, and it’s even tougher place to excel at.

To even apply you need great grades, athletic ability and a letter from a senator or the friggin’ president of the United States…

And then you have a 91% chance of NOT getting accepted.

If you do get accepted get an education worth $250,000-$300, 000, then you must work for the military for the next 5 years.

Thousands apply each year. Few are accepted.

They spend 4 years building discipline, confidence and character (sound like another place you know…?)

Can we do the same thing for $150 a month?

Can we build students of leadership, character and skill for a fraction of what West Point charges?

Yes we can.

Maybe it’s time to do a better job of telling the public just exactly what our results are.
