As a member of the Cadet Corps, students are involved in:
Leadership development

Lifeguard & First-Aid Training
Marksmanship & Biathlon teams
Community Service activities
Fitness training
Military skills
Among our many traditions, one of the oldest and most colourful is the #142 St. Andrew’s College Highland Cadet Corps. The Cadet program was established in 1905 and has evolved over the past century into a broad-based spectrum of leadership training that teaches teamwork, and recognizes both individual and group achievement.

This leadership journey, which starts in grade 8 and continues until their grade 12 year, allows SAC students the opportunity to rise through the ranks and lead their peers in the establishment of future leaders in our community as well as in society.

Cadet senior leadership positions are announced in June for the following year. Click here for 2017-2018 appointments.
The Cadet Corps training year culminates in three annual ceremonial events: 
Church Parade - Parents and friends welcome
Headmaster's Inspection
Annual Cadet Inspection 

Throughout the year there are other special events such as the Remberance Day Service, Wellington Dinner & Leadership Lecture; and a Celtic Concert.
