Notes for Prospective Students

Welcome to New York Military Academy (NYMA).  Founded in 1889, it is one of America’s oldest boarding schools and a premier college preparatory school posting a 100% college placement record.  Located approximately 60 miles north of New York City, nestled in the picturesque Hudson Valley of New York state, our plush 120 acre campus in the village of Cornwall-on-Hudson has a clean, small town, fresh air atmosphere.  We are a co-ed school for grades 7-12 for day and boarding students with a diverse student body drawn from around the world.  In this setting NYMA students have been ‘Set Apart for Excellence’ for over 125 years. What makes us unique, and indeed so successful, is our teaching principals.  We maintain small class sizes enhancing personalized instruction with a 1:12 teacher to student ratio.  Class sizes range from 4 – 15 students and in our rigorous 21st Century curriculum we offer a wide range of courses.  Additionally, our teachers are accessible throughout the day.  Our faculty come from a broad range of international teaching experience with advanced degrees from well know institutions.  They also provide guided study periods at specified times.  Our cadets also have designated exclusive study time in their rooms which is protected from outside distractions.  The results of this program have prepared our graduates to attend such top schools as George Washington University, North Eastern, Boston University, Penn State, Rutgers and the Service Academies to name but a few. To support and reinforce this strong academic environment, NYMA uses the ‘military model’.  Under 24/7 TAC Officer supervision, this model provides the organization, structure, discipline, leadership experience and a reward system that motivates and makes our cadets successful not only here at NYMA but also in college or any other walk of life they may choose.  Through the Academy’s ‘Honor Unit of Distinction’ designated Army Junior Reserve Officer Training (JROTC)program, cadets learn such critical skills as time management, organization, task prioritization, critical thinking and self-discipline.
As they progress through the system they are rewarded by being assigned (promoted) to positions of increased responsibility and leadership.  This leadership development process uniquely enhances the cadet’s communication and interpersonal skills.  All of these aspects help the cadet develop into a well-rounded student and contributing citizen.  Though we use the military model to help teach our cadets, there is absolutely no military obligation to serve in the military.  In fact, most of our graduates use the skills learned here in pursuit of excellence in their civilian endeavors.   Our rigorous academic curriculum grounded by a demand for competence in the classical disciplines thoughtfully prepares NYMA graduates that are prepared to seek out extraordinary lives that are ‘Set Apart for Excellence.’NYMA also offers a program incorporating English as a Second Language as well as study abroad opportunities!
