New York Military Academy, established in 1889 in Cornwall-on-Hudson, New York, is a college preparatory school for day and boarding students in grades 8 through 12. NYMA is dedicated to a comprehensive and substantive process of developing young leaders who are "Inspired, Engaged, and Ready" for success and fulfillment in college and in life.
Utilizing the military model and a rigorous, expeditionary curriculum grounded by a demand for competence in the classical disciplines, NYMA graduates are thoughtfully prepared to seek out extraordinary lives of accountability and service. NYMA cadets pursue a cutting-edge and relevant 21st century curriculum alongside a structured, leadership and life-skills focused military program guided by the school’s decades long affiliation with the United States Army JROTC. Not only is this whole-child method a proven educational approach for intentional and forward-looking students, but this unique model also offers more peer leadership opportunity, self reliance, personal accountability, and thoughtful structure than is available to aspiring young leaders in most other public, independent and charter schools.
