    MMA is an excellent all-boys college preparatory academy with a focus on structure, reward, leadership and honor. The students here have so many tools to develop their character and motivation. If they choose to participate, they'll have a plethora of opportunities and activities to choose from. Everyone finds their "brothers" here, and it's a highly valued attribute for the boys. They cherish their brotherhood with the other guys. The teachers know each cadet well, and they're invested in their success. The men who lead the Corp of Cadets overall are incredible men of honor and outstanding role models for the boys. If a young man wants to rise up, this is the place to challenge him to do so!

    Unlike the stereotypes seen in the movies, military school is not a punishment. That is especially true at MMA, where cadets are constantly reminded that college preparation is the reason they are at MMA. Every Missouri Military Academy student is put on a track that will prepare him for the college that is right for him.

    The military model provides a platform to teach attention to detail, structure, resilience, and strong values - one that is readily embraced by young men who take pride in their ability to carry on the military traditions that have been part of MMA since 1889.

    The young men who succeed at MMA will be able to carry the life lessons learned here wherever they go. Self-discipline, self-confidence, a sense of duty, organizational skills, public speaking ability, and the level of bearing and polish that is unique to military-style training.
    I like the opportunity to become something, to develop qualities and leadership potential. The aspects of brotherhood and friendship creates relationships that last a lifetime. The lifestyle is well disciplined and structured proficiently to change boys into young men for the better.
