Extraordinary leadership defines NYMA. Specifically, my daughter's self-confidence was catapulted by the structure and discipline expected and required. The preparation for real-world experiences, specifically how to deal with adversity, exceeded all my expectations. Impeccable cadet training pushes our youth to be the best they can be. NYMA prepares LEADERS who are not only well educated but can handle life's challenges with tact and skill. I am so very proud of my daughter for her achievements at NYMA.
