West Point Leadership Corps at Bronx Latin – Go Army! Beat Navy!

Congratulations to the Army cadets at West Point for their victory this weekend!

Bronx Latin students have been in partnership with West Point Military Academy for the last 4 years as part of our West Point Leadership Corps! Through our partnership with West Point, our high school students are mentored by West Point cadets who develop our students leadership skills. In turn, Bronx Latin high school students mentor Bronx Latin middle school students around areas of attendance, academics, and behavior. 

Through this partnership, Bronx Latin has had a chance to develop over 200 leaders who in turn have brought these skills back to our community. This past week, Bronx Latin students were able to travel to West Point to meet with the cadets, have discussions on leadership, and even attend classes with some of the cadets! As our students have learned “Make us to choose the harder right instead of the easier wrong, and never to be content with a half truth when the whole can be won.”
