“His grades were night and day improvement. He said he felt like it was easier to make friends (at MMA). His self-confidence has improved, and he is a happier child. Landon takes initiative in his own life. We have a conversation about a potentially bad grade and he just takes it upon himself to get a teacher, figure out tutoring and do what he needs to do to get that grade up.” — Jennifer Kjohlede, MMA Mom 

"This school was something I definitely didn't expect ... It's been life-changing."

From 7th grade cadet to graduating high school senior, learn how MMA has positively impacted three different cadets' lives.
