Cadets on the Run

These cadets from Sarasota Military Academy were taking a post-school run last week in the cold rain.  And, not one of them looked miserable.  They just looked determined to accomplish their task.  (The kids leading the pack were flying.)  SMA is an excellent choice not just for young students interested in pursuing a military career, but for those who may need a more regimented routine and discipline than what you find in a traditional public classroom.  Every SMA cadet I've ever met has been very polite and represented their school well.   Onward!

I agree, some need more "structure" and disciplined lifestyle. Great shot.

Glad to know these academy places are still doing well. Discipline makes good leaders!

Well caught! Memories of school cross-country runs, rain or shine. I wonder if they are still allowed in these days where there has to be risk assessment for just about every activity undertaken in education.

A military school wouldn't have been good for me, but I completely agree that the discipline from schools like this can do a world of good for some kids who will blossom in that environment.
