Year after year, MMA has been successful at maintaining 100% college acceptance for graduating seniors. It is one of our markers for success in our strategic plan and a key focus at the Academy. We go beyond preparing them academically for their college coursework and get into the nitty-gritty details of the application process, career planning, financial aid and more.
In an effort to provide a continuously enhanced experience for cadets, MMA has created a new section on our website that will focus entirely on providing college and career guidance for cadets. These College & Career Guidance webpages includes the following information:
- A map of the planning and preparation process cadets will embark on with the college placement office throughout their senior year
- Resources for cadets to learn more information about careers and search for colleges, universities and technical institutions that will meet their needs and goals
- Information about financial aid – including the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) – and resources to find and learn more about scholarships, third party loans and more
- Lists of suggested scholarships, specifically selected by the college placement office, that cadets may apply for
- Upcoming college representative visits and virtual college fair opportunities
- Information about the ACT and upcoming ACT test dates
A strong partnership between MMA and parents is invaluable in helping cadets take command of their futures. Both guardians and cadets are encouraged to bookmark the page and check the site regularly for updates.
“MMA will provide cadets with a foundation of discipline, perseverance and knowledge. The college placement office will help them make the plan they will use to build upon that foundation after graduation,” said Director of College & Career Placement William Roundey. “Parents will be their greatest ally and support as they navigate college and their careers, so it is equally important that both cadets and parents use MMA as a resource to empower and educate themselves before graduation.”
Families with questions about the college selection, application or financial aid process can contact Director of College & Career Placement William Roundey by phone at 573.581.1776 ext. 228 or via email at email@example.com.
