Parents of West Point cadets experience unique challenges as their sons and daughters undergo a rugged and demanding training program. Membership in a West Point Parents Club offers an opportunity for mutual support, fellowship, and access to useful information about the Academy and cadet life. At present there are more than 100 clubs throughout the United States and abroad.
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 6/9/15)
Emergency Contact Information - If
you have a family emergency and can not reach your cadet via phone,
text or email, you can call Central Guard Room (CGR). CGR is staffed 24
hours a day, 7 days a week - (845) 938-3030. In addition, if there has
been a death in the family, please contact the Red Cross or 877 272-7337.
The Red Cross helps with the verification in order for the chain of command to make a decision regarding emergency leave.
If you need to reach a member of your cadet's TAC team - Brigade Tactical Department Contact List.
