Character. Athletics. Academics. Leadership. Adventure. These are the pillars of a Missouri Military Academy education, where young men are empowered to unlock their potential.
MMA is a college preparatory boarding school that has readied young men for college and life since 1889. As the only military boarding school in Missouri, and one of few in the United States, they provide a unique program that inspires boys to reach their potential. Their all-boy program is designed around the needs of boys during their formative years, tapping into what motivates them – positive reinforcement, structure, consistent physical and mental challenge, loyalty and a team mentality. MMA removes the distractions that slow a student’s academic progress, and fills that space with a “360˚ Education” with five essential elements – academic excellence, character development, personal motivation, physical development and leadership training.
Unlike the stereotypes seen in the movies, military school is not a punishment. That is especially true at MMA, where cadets are constantly reminded that college preparation is the reason they are there. Boys in grades 7-12 are in boarding and day programs, with an additional postgraduate Gap Year option that allows students to earn college credit. Every MMA student is put on a track that will prepare him for the college that is right for him, and the academy boasts 100 percent college acceptance every year.
The Corps of Cadets lives by an Honor Code: “I will not lie, cheat or steal, nor tolerate those who do.”
MMA men carry the life lessons learned there wherever they go. The academy will help your son reach his academic potential and develop into a well-rounded, confident young man.
