Historical path of the Cadet Corps in Russia

February 28 marks the birthplace of our 280 years from the opening of the first day or Cadet Corps. Etymology of the word cadet is rooted in the indigenous dialect of Gascons. The Latin "kapitellium" meaningful literally "little captain" was transformed into "kapdet", and in the Russian language has sounded in his own contemporary terms.

First cadet corps appeared in Prussia. Approved the establishment of schools for military service of noble kids majestic Elector in 1653. Then came the spread of this kind of educational institutions all over Europe. In 1716 was established cadet squadron, which stood at the head of a four-Frederick, known then majestically. Monarch attention paid to military education and heir, as we know from history, not in vain. Before the emergence of the cadet corps in Russia noble kids had served in the Guards regiments Transfiguration and Semenov, and then enters the ranks of the army. Nobles also studied in made in the times of Peter the schools of mathematical, navigational and engineering sciences. For Soldiers babies were made garrison schools.

In Russia the idea of forming the Cadet Corps brought the mighty Teuton Munnich. Insisted on its establishment and pochetaemy Empress Paul Yaguzhinskii. At the end of February on a brand new style of 1732 Minich Anna Ivanovna proposed project newest school for sons of the nobility, arguing the need for an impartial institution such time need. All the students had to wear uniforms, also observe the strictest discipline and diligence to learn. Corps Director cadet was appointed Major-General Grigoriev. In the framework of the project was initiated device Prussian cadet institutions.

Elizabeth issued a decree on the development of the Sea Cadet Corps in order to regain its former power of Peter's fleet. Catherine Lofty organized the second housing Peter the stateliness, as the first cadet Capital housing. More than fifty different agencies for cadets were opened for 280 years gone. In each of them to develop their own charter of, personal and educational programm form. Students can post not only get the highest rank of officer, and accepted without testing in higher education. Graduates were counted among the elite youth and intelligent forms the active layer in the society of the country. A huge number of professional writers studied in these institutions and fondly remembers the years of his youth in his own work.

At first, the management of educational institutions Cadet produced solely Director, from which mainly depended programm training routine day or pupils, their everyday duties. Change of control could lead to the transformation of the whole institution, and even change disciplines.

In 1734, the first military school, named gentry, established the position of chief professor who tracked down the quality of education and to identify opportunities for each of the students coming to their advice to one or another post. The structure of the school were two sotennye company housing, which were attributed to the boys. The rooms are furnished with a moderate descent lived for seven and in the best case, six cadets, one of whom played for the senior and responsible for order and discipline. With babies constantly was an officer, of noble origin, literacy, and other subjects. Apart from the military and civilian science, cadets were taught the rules of etiquette. Teachers believed their own duty to eradicate vices midst of the disciples and engaged in their multilateral development. Three times year examinations were carried out personally like and once in the presence of the Empress or more officials. The duration of training was 5, and from time to time 6 years.

The formation of the educational process and the specific rules was almost 10 years old. The first generation of cadets had a different age, and often do not know how to read and write. Many of the students do not learn lusted. Some outright refuses to attend classes, while others pretended to be unhealthy and pretended for months. As a result, the Empress in 1737 signed the order that is not assimilated to the program from the age of 16 cadets to be sent into service as sailors. The threat of being classified as a discharge from the rootless and uneducated sailors had done its work, and the vast majority of students have to pass exams successfully.

Cadets to achieve 14 years of their spread on two fronts: military or civilian. Graduates who brilliantly passed the examination carried out in the title of lieutenant, others became ensigns and cornets. If the cadet's performance was at a low level, it is assigned a non-commissioned officer rank.
