Set Apart for Excellence

Established in 1889, the 120 acre campus is conveniently located just 60 miles north of New York City. New York Military Academy is a college preparatory school for day and boarding students in grades 7 through 12. We are dedicated to developing young leaders who have that competitive hunger and desire for success and fulfillment in college and in life, and who desire to be successful leaders in the future. Utilizing the military model for leadership and development, and a rigorous curriculum grounded by a demand for competence in the classical disciplines, our graduates are thoughtfully prepared to seek out extraordinary lives of accountability and service.

In the classroom, our cadets pursue a cutting-edge curriculum alongside a structured, leadership and life-skills focused military program, guided by our school's long affiliation with the United States Army JROTC. Our school continues to be designated as an Honor Unit with Distinction by the Department of the Army and enjoys a solid reputation as one of the nation's leading institutions in number of graduates attending The United States Military Academy at West Point, The United States Air Force Academy and the United States Naval Academy. We also have an excellent track record of cadets competing for and earning four-year ROTC College Scholarships.

NYMA graduates are leaders in all walks of life. The Academy's "tracks of intentions" high school discovery program enables students to pursue lines of academic credit and co-curricular experiences that enable them to gain exposure to areas of inspiration. Those tracks of intention our cadets currently pursue are:
Classical/College Preparatory Diploma Track
Research and Technology Track
Service Academy Preparatory Track
Teach for America Education Track
Business/Entrepreneurial Track
International Diplomacy Track

NYMA's competitive academic, experiential education and athletic programs are enhanced by a structured boarding environment that includes daily tutorials, a nightly, mentored study hall, a robust ESL program and a 12:1 student/teacher ratio in the classroom. Cadets enjoy substantive opportunities to not only learn accountability but to practice peer leadership and to accept important responsibility. One of the things that set NYMA apart from the normal college prep school is what we call our "real-life leadership lab". Putting our cadets in positions of increased accountability and responsibility in the Cadet Corps, while at the same time requiring them to maintain a high level of academic and athletic participation, requires them to constantly improve their organization, planning, time management and multi-tasking skills. We believe development in these critical areas gives our graduates a distinct advantage over others as they transition into some of the more prestigious colleges and universities in America.
For over a century, this culture of cadet leadership, community responsibility and personal resilience has built an esprit de corps among the NYMA student body and graduates that has created a powerful alumni network that helps set the standard for success and achievement. Our distinguished list of graduate scholars, business men and women, male and female career military officers and world-renowned musicians, energize the campus and provide our cadets with a distinguished networking and mentoring base to help them as the step into the future.
