Cadets live in adult-supervised dorms, otherwise called barracks. They live in two-man rooms, with the opportunity to earn a single room by working hard, exceeding standards, and taking on leadership positions.

Cadets are part of “companies” within the military model. Boarding Cadets in Grades 7–9 are in Delta Company, while those in Grades 10–12 or Post Graduate are part of Alpha or Bravo Company. Charlie Company is composed of day Cadets, who are also assigned their own dorm rooms for changing clothes and storing uniforms and other personal items during the academic day. These companies have Cadet leaders who ensure the daily schedule is followed, rooms and common areas are cleaned, and accountability is maintained.

There are numerous clubs offered during the week, allowing Cadets to participate in activities that range from martial arts to chess, live action role playing to boy scouts. A Cadet will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities while building lifelong relationships with his fellow Cadets.
