The core of the Camden experience is the Academy’s academic program.

Camden enrolls young men in grades 7 through 12 and offers a post graduate year.

The academic program at the high school level offers college preparatory, honors, and dual-enrollment curriculum. All high school students must earn 24 units for graduation. These include four units of english, four units of math, four units of science, three of which must be lab sciences, four units of social studies and two units of a modern foreign language – French and Spanish are offered. Students must also take a course in computer literacy and in JROTC. Additional units must be earned from approved academic electives. More information on Camden Military curriculum can be found in our Academic Course Catalog attached at the bottom of this page.

The academic program is structured around a traditional class day, with all students taking six academic classes a day as well as JROTC. All class sections are small with typically fewer than 15 students in a class. Students are apprised of their academic progress every two weeks. Those students who earn less than a “C” for the two-week grading period in any class are required to attend a tutorial time with their teacher. In addition, a mandatory teacher-supervised study period is conducted four nights a week. All students are monitored and assignments checked.

Camden Military Academy is fully accredited by Cognia. This allows for seamless transfers to and from public schools and other accredited private schools.
