ASB Club Offerings

The Associated Student Body (ASB) encourages character development, values, and a sense of respect and responsibility in Cadets.

Senior Cadets are elected and appointed to ASB Officer positions, and they meet regularly with the ASB Director to discuss issues pertaining to the needs of Cadets, the Academy, and the greater community.

In addition to the ASB Officers, each class nominates class representatives. Officers and class representatives serve as role models for the Corps of Cadets. They are expected to be in good standing in terms of academics, citizenship, and leadership.

ASB Clubs allow Cadets to get involved in activities outside of Academics. Many of the clubs complete community service projects, some are for entertainment, and others are faith-based. We have a club to match the interests of each Cadet on campus, and Cadets are required to be members of at least one club per school year.

Club Offerings

The Associated Student Body (ASB) facilitates a wide range of clubs on campus.

Anti-Bullying Club

The Anti-Bullying club exists to promote kindness and helping others to instill positive characteristics in

another while discussing different life philosophies and approaches to ensure community safety and rapport. We aim for the club to be interactive,
student-centered, and meaningful so students are motivated to plan and organize positive campus activities.
