The Marine Military Academy develops disciplined, morally strong, college ready young men who are prepared for responsible leadership. We help young men succeed by offering a structured learning environment. Of all the military schools, the Marine Military Academy is the only one based on the traditions, values, and ideals of the United States Marine Corps.
While MMA is a College Preparatory school, we do more than prepare our students for college. MMA prepares our students for Life.
The faculty and staff of Marine Military Academy provide a dynamic curriculum taught from a college preparatory perspective. We provide structured, challenging and innovative instruction that exceeds national norms. All students are expected to give full attention to a demanding program of studies. Expectations for both conduct and achievement are set high.
Small class sizes, specialized curricula, and individual attention from faculty and advisors at the Marine Military Academy gives our students many distinct advantages. Our students acquire abilities that ensure success in college and in life such as the ability to: study hard and apply themselves, manage their time, set goals for themselves, think for themselves, get along with others, accept responsibility, and be active participants - not passive recipients.
Whether it will be in business, education, military service, science or the arts, a young man graduating from MMA has all the tools, physical, mental and spiritual, to meet life head on and succeed. As a result of our program, nearly all of MMA graduates are accepted into post secondary education.
Military schools are often the first choice of both young men and their parents who want superior academics in addition to the best aspects of the military system: responsibility, leadership, and discipline.
Marine Military Academy is a top military school and the first choice for many young men and their families. To discuss the potential of your son, contact us today.
