    Well it's hard to say until you get into High School. But from what your plans are you have the right mind-set and plans. Good luck! :)
    Also remember, to get into West Point you must have a nomination from Congress, President/Vice President, or Department of the Army. High SAT Reasoning and Courses, and High ACT too.
    What do you mean by, "in Leadership"?

    Remeber, academics aren't going to get any easier in High School. Work as hard as you can for a high class rank. It's one of the most determining factors for academics (which makes up 60% of your Whole Candidate Score).

    Work SUPER hard on your grades. A 3.6 is great for middle school and high school, but it's the study habits. I'm going to sound approximately 60 years old with this, but here goes: I wish I had better study habits when I was your age!

    Seriously. If you want to do all those activities in high school, you'll have NO time for homework, and if you want to take advanced classes at all (which you do if you really want the academy), LEARN TIME MANAGEMENT NOW. :hammer::rant2:
