During my first year at Culver, I grew the equivalent to three years that I would have had of growth back home. I got to meet people from all over the world, with different backgrounds, and different ways of thinking. The schools creates a community in which it is very easy to form lifelong friendships. Suddenly all the girls from CGA are your friends...and your closest friends are the girls from your dorm (or house), and your best friends are the girls from your floor! It does not matter what country/age/religion/ethnicity they are. Academics are the best and suddenly you are taking classes with the author of the book used in class, and not only used at culver but in other high schools in the country. The teachers genuinely care for the students and they live right on campus so they are always available to help students. Every sport/activity you can come up with is probably there and if you want/like an activity that is not there, the school is always willing to open it!

Culver Academies is an experience like no other. It is a unique place with its rich history and military leadership culture with every opportunity and facility imaginable. Students who are looking for a challenge that will be more difficult than college, but will yield great academic and personal character, should consider Culver Academies as their first choice.
Nearly 10 years out of Culver and it remains one of the most developmental experiences of my life - much more so even than college. I grew up a lot, developed a high level of independence and self-sufficiency, and developed time management skills that helped me hit the ground running at university and eventually a management consulting job. I feel thankful to have had this caliber of experience while existing in an environment that seems more socioeconomically diverse than that which many of my colleagues, who went to New England prep and boarding schools experienced. I feel much more in touch with the "average" American because of that.
