  • The Services: We pledge to maintain the traditions of the DCA and keep them always bright and strong.
  • The Academy: We are proud of the Defence Career Academy. We will at all times endeavour to uphold its reputation by our conduct, bearing and manners both within and outside the campus.
  • The Houses of Cadets We are a family. We are loyal to each other. We act as one single entity.
  • Truth: We will always follow the harder right rather than the easier wrong.
  • Discipline: We will obey all orders at once. We will never leave a task unless permitted to do so by a superior.
  • Punctuality: We will make punctuality our second nature.
  • Supervision: We will work without any need of supervision. Supervision is unnecessary when duty is performed conscientiously.
  • Work and Play: We will work hard and play hard. We will keep ourselves physically fit, mentally alert and morally upright.
  •  Gentlemen: As future officers of the Armed Services we will learn to conduct ourselves as gentlemen.
