Your role as a proud, supportive parent is an important one. The United States Air Force Academy provides a variety of resources to support you and your cadet and help you both adjust to this new, exciting life.
WELCOME TO OUR FAMILY
Being a parent is hard work, and no matter what people say, it doesn’t get easier after your children move out of the house. You worry if they’re safe and happy. You worry if they’re getting enough to eat. You hope they’re doing their laundry.
Your role as a parent of an Air Force Academy cadet is even more complex but truly special. Your sons and daughters are attending one of the finest institutions in the country. They will enter the Academy as young adults, and after four years, they will emerge as officers of the United States Air Force. To support you and your cadet through this exciting four-year journey, we’ve put together a few resources.
