Parent Handbook

Our handbook has been compiled to help families in Alaska understand what is happening with their cadet during their time at the Academy.

We have tried to make it as specific to the unique needs of Alaskans as possible and believe it will help you as you work through the unique challenges of having a cadet so far away as you deal with travel, boodle, mail, etc.

Please visit the topic specific web pages that deal with these items individually for more information. Links at the bottom of the page will allow you to go through the handbook online. A .pdf file of the handbook is also available.

Additionally, we have a handbook specifically written to assist plebe parents. This may be found in the Plebe Year section.
