Parents Weekend is an ideal time to reunite in person with your cadet. This weekend also gives parents a chance to see their cadet’s environment up close, attend a home Academy football game, and spend some quality time with their son or daughter. Every year, Parents Weekend falls on Labor Day weekend with this year’s event taking place Sept. 2-4, 2011. Some of the scheduled events include an information fair, an opportunity to ask Academy staff questions, a time to attend one of your cadet’s classes, a parade and squadron open houses. The sooner local hotel arrangements are made the better.
A schedule of events and detailed visitor information will be posted on the Academy’s website.
There are presently more than 90 Academy parent clubs in the United States, with every state having representation. These clubs are an informal way for parents or guardians to stay updated on activities at the Academy. The clubs also provide a chance for parents to become acquainted with other Academy parents in their area to form a support network. To become a member of a club closest to you, please contact the parent’s club liaison at (719) 333-3828 or (877) 268-3383 or visit Parents' Club web page.
