Choose something different

You'll never be the same

Our Mighty Citadel

The decision to attend The Citadel is a commitment to be challenged. As a member of the Corps of Cadets, you will join an extraordinary group of young individuals driven by a strong moral code and a desire to make a difference. You are strong, but when you join your classmates, you become part of a team. Together you become resilient. You form lifelong bonds that define who you are. You learn to uphold standards and learn the value of accountability and integrity. And in this process, you realize that you are capable of more than you ever thought.

Choose something different… and you’ll never be the same.
