Missouri Military Academy will host a college fair on Thursday, October 13 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Centennial Gymtorium. Cadets will have the opportunity to evaluate potential colleges side-by-side and develop the key tools necessary for choosing the “right” college.
Each year, MMA cadets achieve 100% graduation and college acceptance rates, and the Class of 2022 was offered more than $4.1 million in college scholarships. The success of MMA cadets is largely due to the Academy’s dedicated college and career planning program, which works closely with cadets throughout their senior year to help them plan, apply and prepare for their post-secondary goals.
“The college fair offers valuable learning experiences to our cadets and other area high school students,” said MMA Director of College and Career Placement William Roundey. “Students will discover the characteristics they are looking for in a college or university, which will better equip them to evaluate and select their top college choices.”
At the fair, MMA cadets and other high school students can talk directly to college representatives and learn about opportunities available to them in the future. They might also learn about colleges or universities they have not heard of, which expands their understanding of the college experiences and the choices available to them.
MMA sophomores, juniors and seniors will attend the fair. Students from area public schools are also welcome to attend. Students, parents, and counselors may register for the fair online.
Colleges and universities planning to attend the MMA college fair include: Avila University, Marion Military Institute, Norwich University, Rockhurst University, University of Missouri-Columbia, University of Kansas, Washington University, Truman State University, Ranken Technical Institute, St. Charles Community College, William Woods University, and more. The United States Naval Academy, Coast Guard Academy, Army and Navy will also attend.
