So it's mostly a 8-4 kind of gig? How much of it is school and how much of it is work? Do they expect you to do homework at home? I wouldn't mind except that I'm not the typical student with a wife and kid at home to take care of.

Just so you're  aware, your family is not going to be moved with you when you go to A school.  This is what's known as a TDY (Temporary Duty) assignment, which does not entitle you to having your family moved at Government expense.  Once you graduate A school, you will have PCS (Permanent Change of Station) orders, which entitle you to a move at Government expense.  The only A schools that issue PCS orders are the aviation ones, due to length of the course.  I'm not aware of any others.

Actually chief since ET A school is 28 weeks long dependents are authorized to be relocated to Petaluma at government expense. Married students can live in on base housing if available as well as on the economy.

Thanks for the update!

We're hoping they have room for us on base, but I don't mind commuting. Snoopy's Home Ice is in Santa Rosa anyway and I'm gonna need to play a little stick and puck here and there.

My question(s) still stands though:

How much of it is school and how much of it is work? Do they expect you to do homework at home?

Either way: I appreciate your responses and I'm grateful for your help.

I don't think I ever went to a school in the CG that didn't require work outside of class. You'll have exams and you won't be given time to study for them in class. Understand the whole focus of A school is to graduate you as a 3rd Class Petty Officer with a basic proficiency in your rating. There is no way you're going to be able to accomplish this in eight hours a day of class. I hate to say this, but of your family is going to be that much of a distraction, then don't bring them, or choose a rating with a shorter A school.

What the Chief just said. It’s not 8-5, it’s much more.
