All new Lyman Ward cadets, are be required to undergo New Cadet Training (Scrubs). The Scrub program has been designed by senior cadet leadership in coordination with Tactical Officers and the Commandant of Cadets, and approved by the Academy President. New Cadet Training begins the afternoon that new cadets arrive on campus and ends with the ceremonial Scrub Graduation Ceremony.

Scrub Training is designed to quickly and efficiently teach new students how to be a cadet at Lyman Ward. The learn how to contribute to a team, how to wear their uniforms, how to drill, and how to follow the guidance of the leaders above them.

This is the important first step in developing an inner sense of self-discipline, and is based on the premise that in order to become a leader one must first be a follower.
