Becoming the men they were meant to be

Learn how we build future leaders through camaraderie, military structure and traditional values. Learn more about our summer programs and how to enroll your son in our accredited boarding program for grades 7-12.

Why Camden?

Camden Military Academy offers an exceptional education at an affordable price. The curriculum is traditional, but we do not believe that education is “one size fits all.” Our 40-minute, six classes per day typically have 12 or fewer students allowing for individual attention that each student needs and deserves. At Camden, we realize everything cannot be learned from a textbook, so our cadets are surrounded by strong male mentors who teach, coach, and lead the young men daily.


The Camden Experience

Cadets learn to practice the concepts of honor, integrity, and duty as they grow in their everyday lives on campus. They learn to accept responsibility for their successes and failures in the classroom, on the athletic fields, and in their military roles. Cadets are encouraged to develop their own individual strengths and talents while at the same time to respect the rights of others.The school’s philosophy is to develop the “whole man” to the end that he is prepared not only academically, but also emotionally, physically, and morally, to face the trials and meet the opportunities that will be his after he leaves Camden Military Academy.

Can my son transfer mid-year?

Yes, Some parents want to wait until the start of the second semester to enroll their students. There are many things to consider before transferring at the start of second semester, especially the ability to improve grades and avoid losing credits. Most of the time, sooner is better than waiting!
