MMA makes every effort to encourage every cadet to develop a deeper understanding of their faith of choice. Cadets may attend services at local Catholic and Protestant churches as well as Jewish synagogues and Islamic centers. On campus, there is a weekly non-sectarian service for all cadets.
Cadets are very involved with their local community and participate in many community service projects throughout the year.
The mission of Marine Military Academy's religious program is to encourage and facilitate every cadet’s spiritual development and involvement in the faith of his choice. Furthermore, the cadet will come to understand the necessity for moral and spiritual growth and maturity in his continuing development.

At Marine Military Academy, athletics promote more than physical fitness — they’re vital to leadership development.
In the early 1960s, Capt William A. "Bill" Gary, an Arizona rancher and retired U.S. Marine Corps Reservist, wanted to send his son to a school that embraced the ideology of the Marine Corps. He believed that the Marine Corps’ concepts of leadership, discipline and moral values could be successfully applied to a college-preparatory education. Capt Gary could not find such a school, so in 1963 he recruited a group of prominent Marines to start one. In 1965 MMA was founded as an all boys military boarding school based on the principles of the United States Marine Corps.
He believed that the Marine Corps’ concepts of leadership, discipline and moral values could be successfully applied to a college-preparatory education.
