Parent Perspective

Dear Parents,

Congratulations on your student's decision to attend the most prestigious military academy in the Southeast. To ensure a successful transition to The Citadel, we invite you to consider The Citadel Success Institute. CSI is open to Citadel students in the incoming class of 2022 who have been academically accepted and medically cleared.

For some of you this may be the first time you are sending a child off to college and even if it is not, the transition for your child from high school to The Citadel is different in many ways than the typical transition to college. There are many questions you will have and our hope is to provide information and resources that will help parents and students with the transition. On the right of this page you can click on the quotes to view different testimonials from parents of past CSI students.

If you have not visited the Parent's page on the Citadel website, we encourage you to do so as it provides important information that may help answer some of your questions.


You can now register online for the Parent Luncheon!

Please follow the link below even if you sent in an email.  It will allow you to enter the number of lunches you need (do not include your student) and pay.  We can't wait to meet you!
