Drill and ceremony are key elements of military schools. Each Fall the Association hosts a drill competition between the AMCSUS College Prep Schools. There are categories for both High School and Middle School teams.
Physical Training Challenge
AMCSUS colleges and schools continue to pursue ways to increase cadet resilience and wellness. Each year the Association hosts a Physical Training (PT) Challenge at the College, High School and Middle School level.
Association High Schools and Middle Schools compete annually in a Logic Bowl to challenge and test their critical thinking skills.
The Writing Competition was established to encourage academic writing skills to collect, share insights and research related to military school education. Cadets are asked to provide a single page paper on any aspect of military education (e.g., benefits, challenges, experiences).
