Our Mission

Missouri Military Academy develops cadets who:

  • Are of sound moral character.
  • Are self-disciplined, striving for and achieving their goals.
  • Are academically prepared to attend and graduate from college.
  • Are better prepared for life as a result of the Academy's mentoring and focus on academic, physical, character, and social development.


Unlike the military school image so often portrayed in the media, Missouri Military Academy is a college prep educational institution that helps young men reach their potential in all aspects of their life. The typical student is of good character and has the ability to be a leader. We can help him realize this potential. 

With our structured program that includes academics, athletics, community service, and a wide range of extracurricular activities, each cadet is able to write his own story to become the best version of himself.

Many students are seeking a different type of education that challenges them and presents interesting opportunities that will shape their future. MMA is the right place for that since students have the opportunity to learn leadership skills in an environment that encourages them to become well-educated, prepared gentlemen of character who are ready to take on the world. 

Our Value

Our 360° Education develops mind, body, and spirit; that supports a young man’s need for independence and structure; individual achievement and team-oriented success. This blend of education not only makes for an interesting, engaging course of study but produces young men who are self-confident, well-educated and prepared to succeed in college and in life. Our tuition and fees are competitive - in some cases nearly half of other boarding schools - but the return on investment is priceless.

Our central location allows Missouri Military Academy to offer a first-rate program at a tremendous value to parents. Compare our tuition to those of boarding schools outside of Missouri and you will see that we offer first-rate facilities, strong academics, and extracurricular activities at a great value. We offer financial aid and grants to help make the gift of MMA affordable for families. Our Admissions staff can explain the available options. 

Connecting with Missouri Military Academy

Whether you are just researching this option for your son or you are ready to apply, contacting our Admissions staff is your first step. Our counselors travel often and are happy to meet with you in your hometown to discuss your son's needs on a personal basis.

We regularly hold on-campus open houses for interested families as well.
