NCR Cadet Leadership School

RCLS is designed for Cadet Officers to learn new skills and knowledge they need to be more effective leaders in their home squadrons and wings. The RCLS blends classroom theory with hands-on training to help cadets truly grasp the concepts being presented. There will be pre-RCLS readings, daily assignments, and group discussions on leadership, ethics, and management. The students that attend the RCLS will be expected to staff themselves and maintain the highest standards of academic performance and behavior. The RCLS is academically challenging and the students will have to manage their own time to ensure that they successfully complete RCLS.

To participate, cadets must have completed an encampment and hold the grade of C/MSgt or above.
RCLS or Cadet Officer School are pre-requisites for the Eaker Award.


The 2021 North Central Region RCLS will be held in conjunction with the Missouri Wing Encampment, 17-24 July 2021, at the Missouri Military Academy in Mexico, Missouri.

The event is contingent upon Missouri Wing being in Phase 3 of their COVID-19 remobilization plan.  Phase 3 is the stage where overnight activities are allowed.  As required, a decision will be made within 45 days of the event.
