Split Training Option

This program lets you join the Guard while you’re still in high school.

Here’s how it works: You enlist while you’re still a junior (you must be 17 years old to enlist and have permission from a parent or guardian), finish that year and attend Basic Combat Training during the summer between your junior and senior years.

You’ll return to school for your senior year, during which you’ll train one weekend a month with your local unit. The summer following graduation, you’ll attend Advanced Individual Training and train for your Guard job (your MOS). In most cases, you should be home in time to start college in the fall.

It’s a great way to start serving and a great part-time job during school. For complete details, contact your local recruiter.

NOTE: Army National Guard programs and benefits are subject to change. For the latest information, please contact your local recruiter.
