Greystone Launches the Dream Maker Scholarship Crowd Funding Through Indiegogo
Every year, Greystone receives applications from academy hopefuls who come from difficult backgrounds where they lack family resources or support. These students are tenacious and driven in their pursuit of earning an academy appointment but unfortunately, may not have the same opportunities that other students have in order to get there. To help these students, Greystone has created the Dream Maker Scholarship through a crowd funding website called Indiegogo. Unlike other scholarships that only benefit one student, every dollar that goes to the Dream Maker Scholarship will help a new student year, after year, after year. To learn more about this unique scholarship and ways that you can help, please click here to get to our Indiegogo crowd funding site. With the support of our Greystone friends and family, we can make academy dreams come true for years to come!

Experience Greystone First-Hand
|Current Greystoner, Nicky Manitzas (pictured right) attended a Candidate Weekend as a senior in high school and is now excelling through her year at Greystone with her teammate Tina (pictured left)!|
In February, Greystone will hold the first of four Candidate Weekends this year. These weekends give potential candidates a chance to see exactly what life is like for a Greystoner in this program. Candidates attend Schreiner University classes, work out with the team in early morning PT, participate in Toastmasters (a public speaking organization), and end the day with study hall. They get to enjoy meals with Greystoners in the Schreiner Dining Hall, participate in an official Candidate Fitness Assessment (CFA), and spend down time with the Greystone students. Nicky Manitzas, a current Greystoner that attended a Candidate Weekend last year wrote to us after her experience saying "Your program really seems to inspire people, including myself to be the best they can be and work as hard as they possibly can to achieve their goals." If this sounds like an opportunity that you are interested in, please click on the Candidate Weekend button to the right of this page and fill out a registration form. For more information on Candidate Weekend visits, please go to the "Visit Greystone" tab on the left or give us a call in the office at 830-896-6530!

|Greystone Class of 2014!|
What's in a number? Over the course of the last 8 years, Greystone grads have managed to excel on every front - academically, athletically and as leaders. Since this program began operation in 2004, 99% of all Greystone grads earned scholarships leading to their commission. Of those scholarships, 89% are academy appointments! What's more impressive is that for a Free Agent, 82% earn their academy appointments! What Greystone provides their students empowers them to not just enter an academy, 92% have demonstrated that they have the skills and experience to graduate from the academies! If you are serious about entering one of the five federal service academies - and graduating so you can assume the awesome responsibility of a commissioned officer in the Armed Forces, Greystone is your only real choice for success!
Every year, thousands of high school and college students apply to the Military Academy at West Point, the Naval Academy, the Air Force Academy, the Coast Guard Academy and the Merchant Marine Academy and every year, the vast majority of these high quality candidates are turned down for one or more reasons.See more.
Perhaps their GPA, class standing or SAT/ACT scores were not quite high enough. Perhaps their CFA score was low or they lacked the right sports involvement, extracurricular activities or leadership experience. Perhaps they lived in a highly competitive congressional district or state, and because there were so many equally well-qualified candidates, they did not receive a nomination. Perhaps they could not find the expertise they required to perfect their nomination and appointment application packages.
Clearly, there are many variables within the application process and many personal attributes that must be considered to determine who earns an appointment and who does not. However, if you feel in your heart that earning your academy appointment is part of your future – your dream – you must seriously consider all reapplication opportunities available and select the program that will enhance as many of your variables and attributes as possible. Your goal is to identify a program that will empower you to not just survive; your goal is to invest yourself completely in a program that will enable you to excel so that you can earn your academy appointment and then go on to maximize your entire academy experience!
If you are aspiring to become a true scholar, athlete and leader committed to your dream of earning your academy appointment, dedicated to the task of improving your academic variables and athletic attributes as a candidate, and tenacious in your ambition to serve your country as an academy graduate and commissioned military leader, you belong at Greystone.
