High School Curriculum

College Preparation for the 21st Century Student

The Missouri Military Academy High School program (9th through 12th grade), consists of a challenging curriculum that meets the needs of students at different levels of their academic experience. The MMA academic program ultimately prepares young men for future success in the right college or university.

MMA accomplishes this via a structured environment that enables academic achievement without distractions. Small classes promote individual attention from faculty, which directly impacts a student's progress. An emphasis on self-discipline and leadership facilitates learning.

Program Highlights

  • Each student will receive a course of study suitable to his specific needs. By offering cadets an appropriate schedule, coupled with counseling from an active College Placement office, Missouri Military Academy can boast a 100% college acceptance rate.
  • An MMA education emphasizes global learning, which is a hallmark of a 21st Century education.
  • Cadets who need extra support and structure can attend daily tutorial sessions in the mornings and may also receive help from teachers during evening study halls. 
  • For students who are academically motivated, there are Dual Credit courses in several subjects.
  • There is also a Post-Graduate program for recent high school graduates who need another year of academic support before entering college.
