Established in 1889, New York Military Academy’s motto of Toujours Prêt (Always Ready) reflects the long-standing mission of the school to prepare students for the challenges of the future by making them informed citizens. With that in mind, the students graduating from New York Military Academy embody certain definable and affirmative characteristics. Our curriculum develops students in mind, body, and spirit, while traditional course work with electives is designed to encourage exploration and prepares students for their collegiate future.
Every student participates in a rigorous college preparatory curriculum and interscholastic athletic program. The academy offers varsity, junior varsity, and modified athletic teams that compete in sports, such as soccer, football, fencing, basketball, swimming, softball, wrestling, baseball, tennis, golf, lacrosse, just to name a few. Weekend outings, parades, field trips, rifle team, band, drill team, and horsemanship programs are a few of the additional activities that round out cadet life at the academy.
The military organizational structure and tradition combined with confidence and self-discipline enhance the students’ achievements in and out of the classroom. The Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) teaches accountability and responsibility while developing character and leadership skills. It is these skills that define our students as successful citizens, capable of making significant contributions to their communities and country. The prestigious and highest designation awarded by the Department of the Army, Honor Unit with Distinction, allows New York Military Academy to nominate qualified seniors to the United States Service Academies.
The Admissions Department hosts open house events throughout the year to introduce prospective families to the school, staff, and faculty, as well as tour with a cadet.
Represented by students from twelve states and ten countries in 2011-2012, our overall achievement is measured by the 100% success rate of graduating seniors in gaining admissions to the nations’ leading colleges and universities.
