One Step Ahead

Founded in 1889, the New York Military Academy teaches both discipline and learning, putting it “One Step Ahead.”  A NYMA education develops a cadets mind, body, and character for continued education and leadership. The Academy, the center of learning, with its etymology dating back to Ancient Greece, instills a solid education.  The curriculum individually laid out for each cadet, charts the course of instruction.  This education is interlocked with military disciple, which provides the Cadets of the Corps beneficial training for life beyond the Academy’s walls.  Cadets leave the Academy orderly, prompt, courteous, and self-confident. It is our Military Academy that puts NYMA graduates “One Step Ahead.”
