What is Military School Exactly?

What is Military School exactly? It is NOT what most think.

We are NOT a reform school. Camden Military Academy is a college preparatory school for young men. We are in the business of offering young men a chance to succeed in the classroom and in life. Our typical cadet is a student who has not been working up to his potential academically. Do the following describe your son? Underachiever, poor time manager, and lacking in self confidence? Missed assignments, not turning in homework, and teenage “laziness” are often mentioned terms in initial contact with parents and families. Also, some students may have mild learning challenges (ADD, ADHD, etc…) that a smaller classroom environment or more individual attention may be of benefit.

A boarding school must provide more than just a quality education. Camden Military offers a unique blend of a high quality education and military principles. Hence, Camden Military offers a young man structure, organization and self discipline as well as a strong academic base.

We are NOT a boot camp. However, physical fitness is important. Camden has mandatory morning PT (Physical Training) and/or drill. Sports are also a large part of Camden Military Academy. We have 13 different interscholastic sports and also include intramural activities.

In sum, Camden will strive to produce a well-rounded young man that can handle himself confidently, self-assuredly, and respectfully in any social setting. Camden Military invites you to see if our military school is what you need…you will NOT be disappointed!
