Believe to Achieve
Often students arrive at CMA frustrated. They may be frustrated academically or simply feel like they are constantly being nagged by their parents about school, friends, or life choices. At Camden, we strive to always build our cadets’ self-esteem, which leads to success and a renewed sense of self-worth! At CMA, we teach your son to believe so he can achieve!
“My parents taught me many great things as a youngster, but I learned more about applying those traits as I grew into adulthood at CMA. A big one for me was not being too absorbed with myself and my wants.The adult faculty and leadership at CMA showed us that we had to take responsibility for our actions, and deal with the consequences of our decisions.”
CAM WALTERS, CMA BOARD OF TRUSTEES AND CMA CLASS OF ’73
“I can say with full certainty that attending Camden Military Academy permanently changed my life for the better. CMA’s “whole man” initiative isn’t just a talking point; I am a more well rounded person now than before my time there. I would not be who I am today without it. The military structure and dual enrollment courses prepared me for success in university, where I have thrived while others were unprepared. I have been able to effectively schedule my days, study, succeed in all of my courses and stand out from the crowd. I am now a confident, capable, and disciplined man thanks to Camden Military Academy. Mark McGregor Class of 2022”
MARK MCGREGOR, CLASS OF 2022
“I would like to thank my parents for giving me the opportunity to attend Camden. The structure, discipline, and academic support helped me succeed and develop and I owe that to Camden Military Academy.”
DEVIN WATLEY, CLASS OF 2023
“Camden Military was the best decision I have made for myself, it has given me educational and leadership opportunities I would not have had in the public school system. CMA made me set goals and gave me the support to achieve them!”
LUKE TSCHIMPKE, CLASS OF 2023
“My oldest son entered Camden with GPA of 1.3 in Connecticut-it is almost impossible to go that low! At Camden, he did great and now in college has straight A’s in all subjects and a perfect 4.0 GPA for both semesters! My youngest arrived at CMA with his own issues and a few years later at Camden he is now the BC (Battalion Commander) !!! Next year at Stony Brook University, he will be closer to me and I hope to turn this into a great opportunity to meet often . The two together there made them special brothers , very close and supportive of each other.”
OFFREDO FAMILY, CLASS OF 2017 AND 2018 (2 SONS)
“We enrolled our son in CMA in fall 2016, hoping that this environment would help him overcome the difficulties he had dealing with structure and discipline. At the end of just one year at CMA, we see positive changes all around and our overall expectations of what can be accomplished in such little time have been surpassed. Not only has his school work improved tremendously, but he has also developed into a young man who understands that self-discipline and dedication are key elements for success!
MARTIN FAMILY, CLASS OF 2018
“We selected Camden Military Academy (CMA) 2016 after an extensive on-line and campus visit search for a boarding school for our son. Our son struggled in public school both academically and socially. After the completion of his 8th grade in public school, we knew we had to find a school that could provide our son with a more structured education. We felt he needed more structure to his day, smaller class sizes, and a discipline system that was based on both positive and negative rewards. We toured CMA last year and met with the faculty and staff. We were really impressed with the school and its philosophy. More so, our son was happy after the visit, and told us that CMA “gets him”. It made our selection process very easy!
RANKA FAMILY, CLASS OF 2020
“My son achieved more in one year than he had in the rest of his high school experience, where he was a frustrated underachiever. But thanks to Camden’s positive role models and seamless structure, he enjoyed an adventurous senior year (his first at Camden) while earning substantial scholarship money on his way to The Citadel. Smaller class sizes encouraged him to accept accountability and take control of his future!
BEST FAMILY, CLASS OF 2022
“One of the hardest decisions my husband and I made as parents was to send our son to Camden Military Academy at 15 years old, the beginning of his sophomore year in 2019. We prayed that this decision would help guide him to be the best that we knew he could be. We encouraged him to embrace the school and the opportunities as we knew that if he did that he would thrive. He needed guidance and leadership and was surrounded by strong male role models. He needed the structure and small class size and an education that is no longer provided in the public school system. Lon worked hard in school and equally as hard in athletics and in leadership roles. He is a proud member of the CMA class of 2022. I am so proud to say that he earned a National ROTC Scholarship and has a clear direction for his future!
CALLIS FAMILY, CLASS OF 2022
“Without a doubt, sending Anthony to Camden was a great decision…his character was molded in that military academy.”
