More than 4,000 juniors nationwide applied to the SLS, which offers outstanding high school juniors to experience life at West Point. SLS attendees live in the cadet barracks, eat in the cadet mess, and participate in academic, leadership, athletic, and military workshops. The one-week seminar is designed to help juniors with their college-selection process, while giving them an idea of the importance of leadership and sound decision-making in their education, careers, and lives in general.
All SLS attendees participate in a virtual-reality war simulation, and military and physical fitness training and workshops.
West Point is a four-year co-educational, federally funded undergraduate college located outside of New York City.
