Prep School Membership Questions

Q: I am a parent of a Cadet Candidate (C/C). What are my membership options?

A: The Husky Club Membership — a parent membership to the Association of Graduates (AOG) — which gives you access to AOG membership benefits and WebGuy for $26.00 per month. The Husky Club membership term is a 10 month commitment. Upon graduation from the Prep School, in order to keep your membership benefits as well as access to our WebGuy program, a Husky Club membership will need to be converted to a Family Plan Membership.
The Family Plan Membership is $36 per month for 48 months (with a 12-month minimum commitment). This membership includes two parts: $26 portion goes towards a parent membership to the AOG which gives you access to AOG membership benefits and WebGuy AND $10 portion, which is tax-deductible, goes towards Cadet Led Programs. Signing up for Family Plan during your time at the Prep School will save you $260.00 (10 months of Husky Club membership dues).

Your membership is good for life and your access to Webguy and all other benefits will continue. Look upon it as getting the last year at the Academy for free with continued benefits for life!

A: You should join as soon as possible so you can set up your WebGuy account and enjoy your AOG membership benefits right away.
