THE WEST POINT PREPARATORY SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM (WPPSP)
MMI Cadets are top notch young people who excell both academically and in leadership roles while at MMI. The likelihood of their going on to graduate from West Point is higher ( 91%) than for cadets from any other source of admission (average 78%). After meeting them it is easy to understand why. They are bright, articulate, motivated, and poised. Each previous attendee cited their year at MMI as providing them the academic edge, maturity, and comraderie with peers that will make them successful at West Point.
Another benefit of this program is the close contact it affords with USMA. West Point provides a "faculty advisor" who stays in touch all year by email and visits the school twice a year. MMI also assigns a faculty advisor to the group who in this case is a grad (class of '60) and former instructor at West Point. These kids are well informed and know what to expect. Finally, I want to point out that these are partial scholarships. Tuition at MMI is over $15,000 per year. WPPSP provides $2,000, MMI gives them a $10,000 scholarship, and the families pay the rest.
This is a terrific program worthy of our support."
