New Cadets

Congratulations and welcome to the extended West Point Family. The network of parents clubs are here to help you and your cadet make the transition from civilian life to the West Point regimen.

Check List for New Cadet Parents

  • Join the West Point Parents’ Club of Massachusetts. You will get lots of helpful tips for your WP Parent experience and as a bonus, meet lots of great new friends!
  • Write a letter or card to your new cadet and mail at West Point on R-Day.
  • Purchase the class T-shirt and/or bag at visitor’s center on R-Day.
  • Make hotel reservations for Acceptance Day.
  • Make hotel reservations for Plebe Parent Weekend.

All members will automatically be added to our Club’s email listing.  You will also receive and have access to excellent and reliable communication directly from West Point parent communication liaison, Debra Dalton, and from West Point sponsored Face Book pages (West Point Mom’s and West Point Dad’s).

Purchase Army-Navy Football tickets (if planning to go!). Your Cadet will be allocated four tickets, and you may purchase them in person at the “A” Club desk in Eisenhower Hall on R-Day. Otherwise, to purchase tickets on your own, you must join The “A” Club. xArmy-Navy football is an amazing event, even if you are not a football fan.
