Parent Information

Information for Cadets and Parents (booklet) - The purpose of this booklet is to help parents understand and meet the unique challenges of having a son or daughter attend West Point. Please keep in mind cadets do need to navigate much of the 47-month experience on their own, but we hope you will find this information helpful as you support your son or daughter in their education and training to become a leader of character.   (Updated 6/17/14)
