Consuelo Mendez STEM Academy

Middle School Corps of Cadets

The mission of the National Middle School Cadet Corps (NMSSC) is to influence students to be self-reliant and motivated to complete their education, establish jobs and careers, and be successful, productive citizens.

The purpose of our program at Mendez is to instill the values of being a part of a larger group (Selfless Service), consideration of others (Tact), citizenship (Integrity), service to family and to school (Loyalty), personal responsibility (Judgment), and a sense of accomplishment (Dependability).

The Mendez Cadets program contains hours of leadership training, physical training, drill and ceremonies, orienteering, teamwork and the application of daily personal discipline.
