Through our Colin Powell Center for Leadership and Ethics, CIS students are taught essential life skills for moral behavior, decision-making and dealing with adversity. Through the Residential Life program the military structure teaches cadets self-discipline and the importance of relating positively to others. The Spiritual Life program provides the opportunity for each cadet to grow in his faith. All of these combined create a military boarding school environment that instills within each cadet the values of integrity, responsibility, accountability and leadership.
