What is a review at Missouri Military Academy? 

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.

Why a military school education for boys matters today more than ever

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. Our curriculum, co-curricular and extracurricular activities teach cadets how to think, not what to think, by providing a broad liberal arts education underpinned by leader and character development programs.

 
MMA’s COVID-19 Frontline Heroes  

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.

The whole core of what MMA stands for is still there, even after the ups and downs of 130 years. I believe in what they are doing.
