That's a posh army school, yes? I am not sure where it is. Our Australian state of Tasmania has a West Point Casino and I am easily confused.

Casino.Academy. Hmm. The casino sounds more fun:)
Our West Point is in New York.
It's a four year service academy geared for those planning on making the military a career.
