Our son was always goofing off in public school and making many poor decisions. Frequently associating himself with other children also making bad decisions, fueling negative behavior on a daily basis thus resulting in poor grades and being held back. I can't begin to emphasize how exhausting it was trying to drag him "kicking and screaming" to a successful path. Various motivators were put into place and we would have a pattern of every 3 weeks on and off challenges. Finally, we made the decision to send our son to Camden Military Academy. After several months in his 1st year he sees the "Light" and made the decision on his own to step up to the plate, earn rank and embrace structure. He really cares about doing well and it shows in his attitude even when he is off campus. He is proud of what he is doing and so are we. Now that behavior is in check the grades have also improved dramatically! My only regret is NOT sending our son to Camden Military Academy Sooner!

Before CMA our son was not living up to his potential. CMA has had a significant impact on him since he has been in the Corps of Cadets. Before CMA, we questioned if college was going to be in his future and now the conversation has turned to which college he would like to attend. Camden's smaller class sizes allow teachers to have a personal relationship with the cadets and to make sure that they stay on track. The mandatory study halls have cultivated structure and discipline leading to his academic success. This year has really been one of self-reflection for our son not only in the classroom but other areas as well. He has climbed the leadership ladder and has currently attained the rank of Master Sergeant while in Bravo Company. His behavior and his choices, as a direct result of his time at CMA, are allowing him to see his own future as promising and bright! We will always be forever grateful for the opportunity he has been given at Camden Military Academy.

Since I was young, it was always my dream to serve in the United States military. Many people like to say that but I actually acted on my dreams. The military lifestyle is no stranger to me. At the age of fourteen, I decided to come to Camden Military Academy alone from the state of Washington (2,768.2 miles away from home). During my years of enrollment at Camden Military Academy, I have never had second thoughts about staying, I have never been deranked, I have never violated the honor code and lastly, I have never backed down. I have made many great strides to better myself as a person and become an even better leader. I worked my way from a small bug-eyed private all the way up to the schools S-1 Adjutant. I wish to Enroll in this scholorship program because it would open up a variety of doors for me that were previously unavailable.
