Trainer, Advisor, coach (TAC) Officers
After classes have ended for the day and on the weekends, the Academy is supervised by the TAC (Trainer, Advisor, Coach) Officers. During this time, Cadets participate in sports or PT, complete their homework, and have some time for relaxation.
The TAC is an adult male company leadership advisor with the fundamental obligation to train, advise, and counsel each Cadet regarding his performance and progress in meeting Academy objectives in leadership, character, academics, and service.
Serving as personal mentors to the students in all aspects of campus life, TACs help Cadets gain life skills in leadership, team orientation, socialization, independence, motivation, and responsibility. Many of these men have served our country and care deeply about the personal development, moral character, and the training of tomorrow’s leaders.
TACs oversee physical fitness, mandatory study period, and TAC mentoring time. They also will inspect the barracks and check on Cadet well-being, nutrition, and sleeping habits. TACs also partner with the Faculty and JROTC instructors to mentor each Cadet by employing lessons from LET courses.
Your Cadet’s TAC Officer is the first point of contact for all parents who may have a question about their Cadet’s living situation, discipline record, emergencies, or other Cadet Life issues.
Our TAC Officers are on duty from 2:00 PM– 10:30 PM (PT) Monday – Thursday, with more variable hours on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
In the event of an emergency when your son’s Company TAC is NOT on duty, please contact the Operations Office at:
