Missouri Military Academy
204 N Grand St, Mexico, MO 65265
This military school was founded by Col. A. F. Fleet; Gov. Charles H. Hardin of Missouri served as MMA's first superintendent. After its original campus was destroyed by fire in 1896, the academy was reestablished in 1900 at its present location on the eastern outskirts of the city. The 70-acre main campus lies adjacent to a 218-acre wilderness area that features a lake, a lodge, a stream, and woodlands with riding and hiking trails. MMA comprises a high school (grades 9-PG) and a separate middle school (grades 6-8). Learning resource centers operate at both schools. Instructors at these centers track and assist students in need of additional assistance with their academic work. Required extra-help sessions and supervised evening study are important elements of the program. Qualified students may take dual-enrollment courses, conducted in cooperation with a local college, that meet high school graduation requirements and lead to college credit. The academy has been rated as an Honor School with Distinction by the Army JROTC for more than four decades. The student body is organized as a battalion, and student government is vested in a cadet council. Among MMA's extracurricular activities are private instrumental and voice lessons, marching and stage bands, a drum and bugle corps, aviation, drill team and equitation.
