Continues guidance, personality building and public speaking sessions are imparted to our Cadets to enhance their inborn and acquired skills so as to build them as potential leaders in the Armed Forces of Pakistan and National and Multinational Institutions.
COMMISSION IN THE ARMED FORCES
Commission in the Armed Forces calls for a very high standard of practical education, leadership skills and outstanding discipline. Hence the impression that any student can succeed with a few weeks preparation in any coaching centre is absolutely incorrect. The fact is that if during selection and training process it is disclosed that student has received tutoring in some coaching centre, such a student can be declared unfit for Commission.
Cadet College Lahore offers broad-based quality education and pro-military training with military discipline right from day one. Such a grooming enhances the capabilities of the Cadets and builds their self confidence. Obviously, a cadet offered a pro-military atmosphere with a wide academic base stands better chances for Commission in the Armed Forces.
Cadets are given Pragmatic Education and Training so as to enable them to join the Armed Forces as potential Commissioned officers. Following stages are visualized:
a. First Stage when Cadets can join Cadet College Lahore as Kindergarten Cadets for Montessori, Grade I to IV, as Junior Cadets for Grades V, VI & VII, and as Senior Cadets for Grades VIII,IX,X & XI.
