Military Leadership Program

The SAA military leadership program is a mandatory extracurricular activity for students in 3rd - 8th grade, and provides students with opportunities to acquire leadership skills, learn the principles of teamwork, and develop the esprit de corps that comes from working together to achieve common goals. The program is designed to enhance the school’s rigorous educational program with a focus on developing young leaders of character committed to the school’s motto: Be Honest. Be Kind. Be the best you can be.


SAA's military leadership program promotes a variety of life skills: planning, following directions, working as a team, setting goals, and overcoming obstacles. Through this unique and tradition-rich program, SAA boys have learned to become responsible, self-confident young men. The military program teaches leadership skills, critical thinking skills, and promotes attention to detail.  Students learn how to think as a leader, solve problems, learn to delegate, and build the team. They learn to be leaders of honor and integrity.
