One of the premiere all-boys, private boarding schools in the Midwest region of the US, Missouri Military Academy (MMA) develops young men’s character and leadership skills. Providing traditional instruction in physics, art, music and business, the high school offers 10 Advanced Placement courses and a long list of extracurricular activities. Almost 70% of the faculty holds a Masters or Doctorate degree.
The Colonial-style buildings on a 288-acre campus feature two technology centers, an art center, a gymnasium with basketball courts, a fitness center and an indoor swimming pool. The outdoor facilities have tennis courts, a racecourse, and a 13 meter-high climbing tower and sports fields.

Developing students’ creativity is encouraged at MMA and they have activities from performing and visual arts to Marching Band.
