Where Leadership is Learned

Marine Military Academy was founded on the belief that the United States Marine Corps' concepts of leadership and discipline could be successfully applied to a college preparatory education.
Military School Cadet in Dress Blues

MMA is a premier boarding school offering college preparatory and Marine Corps Junior ROTC programs to young men in grades 7-12, with an optional postgraduate year.

We administer positive guidance and instruction in a safe, structured environment removed from distractions that fosters the growth of mind, body and spirit and, ultimately, inspires transformation.

Throughout a cadet’s journey here, he gains a solid academic foundation, earns the tools to find his own path and learns to take ownership of his future.
