For a young man to excel in college, career and life, he must first take command of his life.  This doesn’t always come easy in today’s world,  and that’s why we’re here.

Missouri Military Academy is a college preparatory military boarding school for boys, grades 7-12. 


Since 1889, Missouri Military Academy has provided the ideal environment for boys to grow into the kind of men we can all be proud of — good husbands, good fathers, good citizens, good leaders.
