Structure brings order to every day. Responsibility develops personal accountability. And love creates self-confidence. A boy’s apathy surrenders to excitement, his complacency gives way to excellence and self-discipline becomes a habit.
Because we’re a small, private school, our faculty and staff mentors share a personal as well as a professional relationship with each cadet, and with each other. Working together, faculty and staff will get a deep understanding of the many facets of your boy’s personality and intellect, learn how to motivate him academically and how to collectively best develop his unique gifts.
Resilience, self-discipline, perseverance and honor. These are the fundamental underpinnings of character — the qualities in a man that enable him to deal head-on with whatever life hands him. No public school, no parochial school, no prep school, no boarding school instills these traits like Missouri Military Academy.
Our faculty are not just teachers. They are also parents and grandparents. They recognize just how special the boys who come here really are, and that most are a long way from home. It’s why they’re always open to talking with Mom and Dad about how their son is doing, and why they treat every boy entrusted to them as if he were their own.
The Hart Career Center offers career and technical programs to secondary students, which include entry level skills and training in technical and service job areas that are in demand in today's economy. Students receive high school credit for their career center classes, and many classes offer college credits, as well.
Presser Arts Center provides high quality performing arts productions, plus instruction in a variety of disciplines, including music, art, performance theater, film and instruments ranging from acoustic guitar to the piano. Through our partnership with Presser Arts Center, cadets have the opportunity to learn theatre techniques.
William Woods University (WWU) faculty come to our campus to teach cadets as part of our Triumph Program. Qualifying cadets can finish high school and earn their associate degree at the same time by taking courses through the Triumph Program. WWU is ranked as one of the top universities in the Midwest.
It’s incredibly rewarding to see each cadet’s face light up when he tells me that he’s been accepted to college.
