Greystone at Texas A&M
There are no guarantees in the academy admissions process. That is why, throughout the year at Greystone, we discuss the importance of creating a solid back up plan. This year, five Greystone students from the Class of 2014 are exercising their back up plan by joining the prestigious Corps of Cadets at Texas A&M University. Four of the five attended New Student Orientation this week and prepared for their arrival in August. They toured campus, registered for classes, and met the Corps of Cadets Assistant Commandant of Recruiting - Colonel Samuel Hawes all while accompanied by Greystone's Executive Director and the President/CEO. Even though these students have left Schreiner University, they are still a part of the Greystone family and will continue to be supported by the staff and teammates throughout their years of ROTC and military service.

Introducing Greystone's First West Point Graduate
This summer, Greystone is proud to announce the graduation and commissioning of our first United States Military Academy cadet, Brendan Lorton. Brendan is a member of the Greystone Class of 2010 where he excelled in all aspects - Academics, Leadership, and Athletics. As a result of his efforts while at Greystone, Brendan earned an appointment to West Point and a place on the Army Swim Team. Now that he has graduated, Brendan will remain at West Point for six months as the assistant swim coach until he reports to Ranger School to join the elite members of the Special Forces. Congratulations Brendan! We know that you will excel in all that you do!

|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.
