Acceptance Day

Plebe Year

The "plebe" year is the beginning of the journey for the young men and women who have accepted an appointment to the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY. It is a year in which the first year cadets are challenged to learn and grow. The change begins on a physical and military level beginning with CBT - Cadet Basic Training and continues during the academic year as they are taught according to the Thayer Method - an entirely new way or learning for many of them.

This portion of our web site is written to help answer specific questions that candidates, plebes and their parents may have. We have also made it available in a .pdf file entitled Plebe Parent Handbook.

For ease in finding information please refer to the index below to find specific information you may need.
