Legion Elite Academy was born out of a desire to provide an antidote to the distracted world in which our children live. We aim to bring real adventure and relationship into the lives of our cadets as a substitute to the artificial variety found in movies, video games and social media. Through weekly urban defense classes, monthly team-building activities, regular leadership training and our annual Warrior Camp, students gain the skills and confidence they need to handle life's most challenging obstacles and become tomorrow's leaders.
Throughout the program, cadets learn how to defend themselves in hand-to-hand combat. They learn weapon techniques. They learn survival skills such as knot tying, first aid and shelter building. As a team, they tackle challenges modeled on the military’s problem-solving obstacle courses. Using a leadership structure in which veteran students lead squads of seven or eight cadets, every warrior is encouraged, stretched physically and mentally, made to feel part of a team – and forever changed by their Legion Elite experience.
