Success Secret:
We offer an academically-challenging and fast-paced program for students in grades 6 through 8 who have an interest in future careers in law or government. The junior cadet program is not intended to be a boot camp program. Our rigorous science and math-based curriculum also offers students hands-on instruction in forensics. Our junior cadets develop relationships with an LAPD officer who is assigned to our site on a daily basis for physical training and leadership development. Students also have the chance to participate in competitions with other schools like Toughest Cadet Alive and Iron Cadet. Learning is enhanced through additional experiences with guest speakers from the FBI, S.W.A.T, K-9 Unit, and Bomb Squad to name a few.
