All registration to the Midwest Youth Academy are pre-approved by several methods. The Midwest Youth Academy accepts applicants through several methods:
- Parent/Guardian recommendation
- Church recommendation
- School recommendation
- Law Enforcement/Court recommendation
Each written recommendation must be accompanied by a application that is filled out in person by one of our staff members with the parent/guardian. Each application is reviewed by our staff and a recommendation of what level the cadet will enter is determined.
