There is a great array of resources available online for students interested in pursuing higher education. Reference materials of various qualities and accessibilities are used often by students who find them on the sites of local and field leaders like Lawrenceville High School, but the number of resources for our students interested in a military college or education are much harder to find and rely on.

In consideration of this, TheBestSchools.org has set out to build guides to military academics that are high-quality, up-to-date, and open use. They include information on programs, academies, and scholarships. It's our hope to reach as many interested students as we can, in Lawrenceville and across the nation.

You can take a look at our guides here:

Military Academics Student Series

Military Academy Fundamentals - https://thebestschools.org/resources/military-academies/

Military Program Essentials - https://thebestschools.org/rankings/best-online-military-studies-programs/

Military Education Overview - https://thebestschools.org/resources/military-education/

We'd like to reach our students with help from Lawrenceville High School. Placing links to these guides on Lawrenceville High School's site can help students looking for direction to make the right academic choices for themselves. Please help us reach students by linking to these guides - a visible page such as https://www.cusd20.com/o/lhs/page/military-links--2 could be a great place to reach them, but feel free to link to them wherever you feel is suitable.

Thank you for sharing these educational resources. Please reach out to me if you have any questions.

Best wishes,
