Cadre Summer Leadership School
Summer Leadership School (SLS) attendees are selected rising juniors and seniors which are prepared for their assigned leadership positions in the Corp for the upcoming year. Students learn about basic drill instruction, uniform and personal appearance, team building, discipline and respect, honor, and leadership. Many activities include visits to D.C. monuments, visits to military installations or activities, and laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
The Performance Team is comprised of several individual units which augment the corps of cadets. These units include the color guard, the drill team (armed and unarmed), the honor guard, and the saber team. Each provide an invaluable service both R-MA and to local organizations such as the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW).
The Honor Guard is made up of eight cadets; one commander and seven cadets carrying rifles. They perform the ceremonial 21-gun salute during the Academy’s Annual Alumni Memorial Service, all home parades, and several local military events honoring our veterans.
The Flag Corps carries all 50 state flags during all home parades as well as parades in the local area. It is comprised of our freshman and selected upper class cadets. The flag corps unit is a main component of our parade unit.
The Saber Team consists of nine cadets; one commander and eight cadets who form the saber arch. They perform the ceremonial arch during Homecoming, the Military Ball, and the Coronation of the Queen during the local Apple Blossom Festival.
