Missouri Military Academy to Host All-Military College and Career Fair

Missouri Military Academy (MMA) will host their first-ever All-Military College and Career Fair on Wednesday, November 3 from 1 to 4 p.m. in Centennial Gymtorium on its campus located at 204 N. Grand St., Mexico, Missouri. All MMA sophomores, juniors and seniors will attend to research post-secondary military school or enlistment options. The fair is also open to parents and all high school students in the state of Missouri. Area homeschooled students are also invited to attend.

The event will allow students across the state to meet and interact with representatives from the United States service academies and maritime academies, local ROTC programs, the Missouri National Guard, area military recruiters and member schools from the Association of Military Colleges and Schools of the United States (AMCSUS).

“We are proud of our connections with these top institutions that serve as pathways to success for those interested in pursuing a military education and career,” said MMA Director of College and Career Placement William Roundey.

One hundred percent of all MMA graduates achieve college acceptance each year. A small percentage of graduates from MMA, a college-preparatory military boarding school, enter the military, and MMA is proud to have helped graduates enter prestigious U.S. military academies.

To attend for the fair, students will need to register at https://app.strivescan.com/students or download the StriveScan app. StriveScan is an information-sharing tool that will enable students to share their contact information with college recruiters quickly and easily via QR scanning.
