Missouri Military Academy is committed to attracting a socio-economically diverse student population that reflects the values and traditions of MMA. In support of this, need-based tuition assistance could be available to provide support to those families whose financial resources cannot cover the cost of the school. Tuition assistance does not need to be repaid and tuition is reduced by the amount of aid awarded.
Financial aid is available to U.S. citizens and permanent residents. To be eligible for financial aid, both parents are expected to be employed, if home and health situations permit. When parents are separated, divorced, or never married, both natural parents must complete the financial aid application.
