DULLES, VA--(Marketwire - March 9, 2011) - Most high school students consider a number of career options following graduation. Very few, however, get the chance to actually experience one of those options before making such an important decision. The Military Leadership Academy, hosted by Freedom Alliance, provides high school students an opportunity to experience the military lifestyle while learning valuable leadership knowledge.

"Service in the Armed Forces is a noble and exciting choice for many young Americans," explained Freedom Alliance President Tom Kilgannon. "Students who are interested in military service should spend two weeks at our Military Leadership Academy. It will challenge them mentally and physically and give them a glimpse at what awaits them should they choose to serve our nation in uniform."

Cadets will participate in a program based on the curriculum of the U.S. Army. Physical training, tours of military bases, leadership simulations, land navigation, field tactics, urban warfare training, and a visit to Washington, DC are a few of the many activities included at the Academy.

The first Academy class takes place from July 4th - 17th; the second class is from July 24th - August 6th. Both will be held at Fort Pickett, a National Guard Post in Blackstone, Virginia.

The Academy seeks motivated high school students who wish to challenge themselves to become stronger and more confident leaders. Students leave the program with a better appreciation for the military, and understand the value of serving a cause greater than oneself.
