Hillsdale is a remarkable college in Michigan that was established in 1844. More of its students went to join up for the Civil War than any other western school. And it is known for offering a Classical education and teaching the Constitution. It also takes no money from the Federal government. And is highly celebrated for its requirements and high standards.

But much less well-known are their shooting range, shooting workshops for adults and students and now, programs for high school students. How did they pull this off in the state of Michigan?

It began when Reading High School approached Hillsdale College and requested that the college offer a safety and marksmanship training course to its high school students. Hillsdale thought it was a fine idea and was interested; the parents at the school worked through the district superintendent and eventually the program was approved, including a segment on the Constitution. The first year Hillsdale signed up four high schools; this past year they signed up 11 high schools and enrolled 159 high school students. They explained that they were focused primarily on gun safety and then marksmanship, with a component on the Constitution (and of course the Second Amendment).

I took a pistol marksmanship class at the U of H in the Hofheinz Pavilion many moons ago.

It was actually a "Problem analysis and Decision Making" ROTC course. Classroom 1 day a week and pistol marksmanship the other day.
