The Garrett County Board of Education voted on January 12, 2021, to accept the Superintendent’s recommendation to remain in the “red model” in which students are learning virtually. Students will begin transitioning back to in-person learning when the Garrett County metrics are at 5% or less positivity rate and 15 or less per 100,000 for 14 consecutive days.

The Cadet Creed is an important part of every cadet's life. It is memorized by each cadet and recited at the beginning of class. It is essentially a cadet's pledge to fully live up to all of the Values which are truly universal. Cadets are not only expected to memorize the Creed but to fully comprehend its meaning and do their best to have it reflected in their day to day activities. Our Cadet Creed reads as follows.
