Military (MCJROTC) Program:
Photo of Military Boarding Academy for Boys in TexasThe Marine Military Academy established one of the first Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (MCJROTC) in the nation. All Cadets are members of the MCJROTC unit. Those who fail to qualify for full membership because of age or citizenship receive the training as associate members. The instilled discipline, goal orientation, and initiative of military leadership training are directed toward scholastic achievement. The program promotes the strong core values that the United States Marine Corps teaches to Marines from recruit training to completion of service.

The MCJROTC program is one of the Marine Corps's contributions to assisting America's youth to become better citizens. The program produces successful students and productive adults, while fostering a more constructive and disciplined learning environment.

The MJROTC has a standard curriculum which includes a variety of academic subjects in the following areas: Leadership, Citizenship, Personal Growth and Responsibility, Public Service and Career Exploration, and General Military Subjects.

The Marine Military Academy is dedicated to developing cadets that possess the full range of academic skills, personal values, social adjustment and physical development to be successful in whatever field of endeavor they choose. The school aims to provide a wholesome, patriotic, and invigorating atmosphere, both mentally and physically, in which students are inspired towards maximum achievement.

Academics:
Academics at Marine Military Academy are grounded in the core disciplines of English, mathematics, social science, science and foreign language, but more important than this knowledge, however, is their complete transformation into responsible learners and informed citizens. MMA has a proven record of helping students increase their grade point average and preparing them for college-level work.
