The Academy will be held June 21-27 at the NH Technical Institute (NHTI) in Concord, NH. It is a residential program requiring the Cadets to report Saturday morning and they are dismissed after graduation the following Friday.

There are three academy classes held during the same week. The Academy starts with the Basic class, held for the first time cadet and is limited to 100 applicants. The cadet who returns for the second year, attends the Advanced Class. This is limited to thirty applicants. The cadet who returns a third year, is usually serious about a career in law enforcement and attends the Leadership Class. This is limited to fifteen applicants.

During the course of the Academy the staff awards the $1000 Walter "Bud" Dockham & $500 John Osborne Memorial Scholarships to two cadets who are entering or enrolled in college. They also award the Edward Soucy Memorial Scholarship for a Basic or Advanced Cadet to return to the next session.
