School Reviews

Camden Military Academy has made an incredible difference in our son's life. Before attending CMA, he was a good kid, but he was unmotivated and failing his classes. CMA has taught him the value of setting goals, being disciplined, and working hard to achieve them. His grades are up, he is happy, and he is becoming more confident every day. We are so thankful for the patient, dedicated teachers and staff at CMA who have poured into our son's life and given him the tools he needs to succeed. I highly recommend the school to parents of boys who need a little help with confidence and self-discipline.
