The non- commissioned officer ranks go in order (lowest to highest) as follows: private, private first class, corporal, sergeant, staff sergeant, sergeant first class, master sergeant, first sergeant, sergeant major, command sergeant major. Non-commissioned officers are who assist with the day to day operations of the companies and have duties such as getting cadets to clean rooms or assist them in marching properly. The officer ranks go in order (lowest to highest) as follows: second lieutenant, first lieutenant, captain, lieutenant colonel. Officers deal with logistics and organize their platoon, company, or battalion. The way to earn rank at Camden Military Academy is through good conduct and a display of leadership. Most Cadets who apply themselves can earn rank fairly quickly. TAC officers, faculty members, and other staff look at a cadet's conduct to make recommendations on rank.
