Missouri Military Academy offers a dynamic educational experience for boys in grades 7-12 in a military boarding school environment. The Academy is known for its 360 Degree Education, which provides a structured, well-rounded, holistic education that is centered upon the pillars of academic excellence, character development, personal motivation, physical health and the enhancement of leadership skills.
Missouri Military Academy 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, we provide a unique program that inspires boys to reach their potential. Our 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.
We remove the distractions that slow a student's academic progress and fill that space with our 360? Education. Our well-rounded "360" approach molds boys into college-ready young men by focusing on five essential elements: Academic Excellence, Character Development, Personal Motivation, Physical Development and Leadership Training.
Our mission is to empower young men to unlock their potential through a structured program of academic excellence, character, social development and leadership training. We offer boarding and day programs for boys in grades 7-12, with an additional postgraduate Gap Year program that allows students to earn college credit.
Why a Mi...litary School?
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 here. Every Missouri Military Academy student is put on a track that will prepare him for the college that is right for him, and we boast 100% college acceptance every year. The graduating class of 2017 earned $4.6 million in college scholarships. Read about our process and some of the colleges that our graduates have attended on our College Placement page.
The military model provides a platform to teach attention to detail, structure, resilience, and strong values - one that is readily embraced by young men who take pride in their ability to carry on the military traditions that have been part of MMA for over 127 years. The Corps of Cadets lives by an Honor Code: "I will not lie, cheat or steal, nor tolerate those who do," which sets the tone for our program and clearly communicates standards and expectations.
The young men who succeed at MMA will be able to carry the life lessons learned here wherever they go. Self-discipline, self-confidence, a sense of duty, organizational skills, public speaking ability, and the level of bearing and polish that is unique to military-style training.
