At Missouri Military Academy (MMA), military reviews are reserved for special moments of the MMA experience – events such as Fall Family Weekend, Spring Family Weekend, Homecoming and Veterans Day. A proud component of military school life, reviews provide our cadets with visible proof of the structure, self-discipline and self-respect that students at other middle schools and high schools do not learn.
Now more than ever, who we are as a military academy — our history, core values, motto and mission —lights the way and provides the foundation and direction for our cadets’ bright futures.

Those who fight COVID-19 on the frontlines have shown true commitment, bravery and heroism despite the hardships and health risks they face every day. We are honoring a few MMA alumni who have made and continue to make a difference during the pandemic.
