The intention of
 Drill and Ceremonies School is to bring the perfection, discipline, and FUN of drill to cadets. In CAP today it is easy to forget the experience and value that drill and ceremony should bring to the Cadet Program. At DCS students will learn proper technique, terminology, common mistakes to avoid, the fun of a well-called jody, the art of innovative drill, as well as a love and appreciation for drill. They will be trained on the mastery of the skill and method of instruction of these techniques in order to return to their squadrons to be Drill and Ceremonies Instructor assets. In this manner the Wing becomes standardized in Drill and Ceremonies per CAPP 60-20.

Highlights include:

- Focus on giving commands, properly drilling a flight, and teaching drill

- Learn to be a better staffer at your home squadron or prepare to be on staff at encampment and other activities

- Space is limited to 40 students

- Must be C/Amn or higher - officers may apply!

The director for the school is Lt Col John Payne, CAP.
The cadet commander for the school is C/1st Lt William Fronkier.
