You still don't get it. PBLA wants the kids who are trying to get away from the bullies and the negative influences of kids who don't care about where they are headed in life (or their parents). PBLA wants its kids to go onto college and succeed in life. The "military" part of the school experience is only the journey, not the destination. While it's wonderful that some graduates of PBLA may eventually get an all expense paid trip to college at West Point, many will enter civilian colleges. Why some folks still believe you should send "troubled kids" to a school where structure, cohesion and honor are the foundations, I will never understand. If they can't make it at a school where there is less structure, how will they succeed at a school where there is more? My experience is that they usually don't! Students will attend PBLA for many reasons, but no doubt, it will be for success in life and in college!
