Mostly wanting to know what to expect timewise, as in: is it a morning drop off and we parents are on our way or should we plan on staying in the area through the 11th?
a link or general info would be greatly appreciated.
SAP students can report in any time between 0800 and 1200. While I don't have the final schedule, in essence your son can be checked in and you can help him move his stuff in. He'll be escorted through the campus to uniform issue and haircuts, as well as to his room. In the afternoon he'll participate in some initial training. There will also be a meeting for parents and family with the President, Commandant, and Dean that afternoon.
The final event of the evening is a reception for the students and their families held by the executive VP. It should be in the late afternoon going until around 1900-2000. After the reception the students will be marched back to their barracks where the training can begin in ernest. The reception is a good time to meet the faculty and staff. I highly recommend you stick around the evening of the 10th.
