  • History

    Established in 1889, MMA was built by A.J. Fleet and funded by local townspeople, including former Missouri governor Charles Hardin. The Academy quickly thrived until 1896, when a fire swept through the campus, killing none but destroying all facilities. President Fleet gathered the cadets, wired the president of Culver Military Academy, and boarded the group on a train to Indiana. MMA was no longer, until 1900, when the townspeople built a new campus and reintroduced the program. Since then, MMA has prepared young men from around the world for college and life.

    Leadership and Confidence Camp


    MMA offers age-appropriate options for summer camp, focusing on the development of young leaders who possess true self confidence. The Confidence Camp for ages 8-11 is all about teamwork and teaching self-reflection – each activity has a self-review component to help young people learn to develop the ability to grow from experiences. The same is true for the more leadership-oriented camp for boys ages 12-17, however, the activities provide more challenge and opportunity for development of advanced team building, decision making and motivational skills.

    From the lakeside barracks, across the landscape encompassing the classic chapel, the parapets of the quasi-ancient buildings maintain a clearly wonderful and beautiful timeless view of a long standing traditional men's educational center delivered in a military theme. Even though Stribling Hall has been completely rebuilt, one would not know this from a drawing, or even most photographs. A school where alumni return to see it exactly as they left it...just more modern. One cannot dispute the beauty of this institution.

    My brother-in-law attend Missouri Military Academy back in the early 70s. His sister, my wife, and I joined the parents for a weekend at MMA. What a wonderful school and experience.

    The large oak's that line the Senior Walk are spectacular,also the fact that Gen.U.S. Grant fought a battle on the sight of the campus,makes this a special place.

    MMA is a gorgeous campus with wonderful staff. My son was there for 5 years. Fantastic school. I highly recommend it.

    I wish they used a better photo of our beautiful campus. Most of the buildings have now been replaced with similar but modern structures. MMA shaped me into a better person who values integrity, loyalty, and honor.

    Missouri Military Academy is a proud and distinguished Institution, having developed and mentored young men across the world for over 128 years. As a Class of 1987 Graduate, My 4 short years at MMA taught me self-discipline, team work and leadership skills that I would never have been able achieve otherwise. With their outstanding academic curriculum, athletics and other activities, MMA is a solid, well-rounded school that can provide a great foundation and better-prepare young minds for the future. I would not be where I am today, a successful, retired Navy Chief Petty Officer, without the knowledge and experiences I encountered while attending this Institution. Highly Recommended!

    I attended the Missouri Military Academy for 4 years. The photo shown in the list of schools to vote for does not at all show how beautiful it is. The views of front campus across the lake or looking up the front entry drive towards the administration building are outstanding. I believe MMA is without question the most beautiful military school in the USA. In fact, in my opinion I believe it is at or near the top of the list for the most beautiful campus of any high school, college or university in the nation. Visit their website to see photos of the campus and facilities. Truly outstanding.

    An amazing institution with a 100% college acceptance, I spent 2 years of my life in that place and they taught me skills that I currently use for my working career, the Discipline and Leadership that I acquired during my studies at MMA have had an Impact in my life.
