What is a mentor?

A mentor is an extremely important assett to our academy and to the cadets who benefit from those mentors. Mentors serve as a guidepost for cadets after they graduate from the residential phase of the academy. Mentors are responsible for guiding cadets towards their goals after they leave the ACA.

Each cadet, while enrolled at the academy, will formulate a well thought out plan for success. This goal is a set of directions towards the dreams and visions each cadet has of their future. Mentors are there to keep them goal oriented to completing this guide and realizing their dreams.
