Welcome to The Citadel Family Association

From Matriculation Day forward, you are automatically a member of this support network that is only a mouse click, phone call or email away. Your son or daughter journeys down the road less traveled, the CFA is here to support you through a readily available network. Representatives at each level are parents of current upper-class cadets. This site and the CFA Facebook page are kept up to date with information provided directly from the school, making them great first-hand sources of information with just a click of a mouse.

Since its inception in 1993, The Citadel Family Association (CFA) has been dedicated to three main goals:

  • To provide information to, and support for, the families of current cadets
  • To provide families with a forum for discussion of common interests
  • To support college initiatives.
