Message from the superintendent

Dear NYMA Community,

As your Dean of Academics, I am continually inspired by our shared commitment to the motto “Set Apart for Excellence.” Here at the New York Military Academy, we uphold four foundational pillars—Academic, Athletic, Character, and Leadership—which together create an environment where every cadet is prepared to lead and excel.

Academic Rigor challenges and engages our cadets, fostering a love of learning and a dedication to scholarly excellence. Our Athletic Programs build physical endurance, teamwork, and sportsmanship, contributing to well-rounded personal development. Character Education is at the heart of all we do, ensuring that each cadet develops integrity, respect, and a strong moral compass. Lastly, our Leadership Training provides the tools each student needs to confidently lead in all aspects of life.

Together, these pillars are not just the foundation of our educational strategy; they are the essence of our community identity. They guide us in nurturing young minds and spirits to face the complexities of the world with courage and conviction.

Thank you for your continued support and commitment to our values. As we move forward, let us all strive to embody the excellence that NYMA stands for—within our academy and beyond. 

Warm regards,
Sunny Doman
Dean of Academics, Headmaster
New York Military Academy
