Students at R-MA have the opportunity to grow in a nurturing environment, becoming part of a larger community that provides support for its members. During their time on campus, our young cadets participate in various group activities and team initiatives that can lead to the development of valuable skills and lifelong relationships.
Our programs and initiatives promote the values of teamwork, mutual trust, and respect—creating a community that comes together to help support our growing cadets. Through our Honor Code, team sports, and our Cadre Leadership Program, we encourage students to work together, forming meaningful and long-lasting ties with each other and their community.
Here’s a closer look at how your donation can help support these efforts!
1. Building Community Ties and Support Networks Through Team Sports
Athletics at R-MA center on inclusivity. Here, students of varying skill levels can join a team, working hard to improve their skills while forming memorable relationships with their team members. Together, with practice and communication, team members can achieve great accomplishments—reaching their personal goals and winning group tournaments.
On their way to the top, our young cadets bond on and off the field, encouraging each other towards progress and growth. This support network extends to our international students, enabling them to forge meaningful ties with the community. Through fun and challenging team sports, our young cadets are able to build camaraderie, experiencing the value and benefits of teamwork firsthand.
2. Strengthening Leadership and Teamwork Skills in the Cadre Leadership Program
At R-MA, students can build valuable skills through the Cadre Leadership Program, where they work in groups to solve problem situations, compete in drill events, and help new cadets learn about being part of the corps. Teamwork is a key aspect of the program, particularly as cadets assume new responsibilities and accomplish daily tasks with their peers.
Through teamwork, seniors and juniors conduct the Cadet Corps’ day-to-day operations. This allows them to develop essential “people skills” that can better prepare them for leadership and managerial roles in the future. In this way, young cadets can experience the responsibility that comes with teamwork while making their mark on campus. By training and mentoring other cadets, students are directly involved in our community-building efforts, driving progress and making lasting impressions.
3. Promoting Trust and Mutual Respect with the Honor Code
Our Honor Code is at the heart of our community, promoting the values of honesty, mutual trust, and respect for others. Students are bound by this Code to act responsibly, prioritizing integrity and personal honor in all of their endeavors.
By embracing the Honor Code, students can help create a supportive space for our community, where school spirit thrives alongside the readiness to help one another. In this way, our community can come together to support the mission of providing young cadets with the right opportunities to reach their full potential.
