From Missouri Military Academy

Since 1889, parents have looked to Missouri Military Academy to give their boys structure, responsibility and love they need to grow, compete and thrive — and become young men in full command of their lives.

Khaliguun Enkhbayar '19 was an international student from Mongolia. Here is what he had to say about his time at MMA:

"MMA has provided me with a lot of academic help... My mom says MMA has changed me a lot in a good way. MMA has helped me."

Enkhbayar became battalion commander (BC) his senior year at MMA, which is the highest position of cadet leader. He says: "I've wanted to be BC since sophomore year. When you receive awards at MMA and get promoted, you have honor and motivation. The promotion shows how hard you have been working... [When I became BC] I cried and kept thinking, 'I'm the first Mongolian commander.' I kept thinking, 'You are carrying your country's and family's name with honor and distinction.'"

    I started my son boarding at 2nd semester of 7th grade. He's now entering 9th grade. The transformation was amazing! He is motivated and worries about keeping his A grade. He plays violin, does equestrian, is on the wrestling and football team. He has made great friends.

    He is becoming the young man he is supposed to be with lots of future choices.

    The school has been very helpful throughout the year. Their handling of the pandemic has been impressive.

    I cannot say enough good things about the school, the education and the community. I highly recommend the school. I am an American living overseas in SE Asia so I am happy to see that my son is getting a top quality education with military understanding.

    Highly recommend this school. You can't go wrong.

    I can't say enough good things of MMA (maxed out my Niche limit). I looked at why the ratings were so low and somebody with a vendetta posted 10 1 star reviews back in August of 2014. The fact that it's still on Niche is disappointing.

    1. Accountability at all Levels. Teachers, Administrators, Students-- there is always communication with updates. President Geraci, Dean Harding, Commandant Grabowski are fantastic. When everyone else was shutting down because of COVID 19, they made sure that everyone safely arrived on campus and locked it down. Students continued to have real classes. Teachers upload comments to the grading site every week on fridays. PR department posts pictures of what the students are doing.

    2. My son is becoming the man I know he can be that means academics, character, and leadership development. I really think the 360 education is worth every penny!

    3. For the fist time, he has confidence and interest in his academics. 6-15 people in a class is awesome!
    One of the best decisions I’ve made sending my son to this school. He was falling through the cracks at his highly rated public school. He went from an unmotivated teenager who had to go to summer school to making straight A’s and getting big scholarships to multiple universities. And that was just in 2 years going there. More than grades though, his attitude did a complete 180. He came home for Christmas break after his first break standing taller, looking happier, and saying yes sir and yes ma’am to adults. My only regret is not sending him sooner!
