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 on the high school level is strictly college preparatory. 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.

Students can also enroll in college courses while attending the military academy (dual enrollment). A cadet can earn college credit as well as high school credit at the same time! The college classes are taken on our campus with professors from The University of South Carolina. Why not get a jump start on your college career?! Please see the available college courses offered below (pdf format).

Camden Academics

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 five nights a week. All students are monitored and assignments checked. Students who maintain an 80 average or better may elect to study in the Cline Library. The library is available to other students during this time by faculty permission and is open daily to all students. The Camden Military Academy encourages library use and has a full-time professional librarian available to assist in that usage.

National Honor Society

The Camden Military Academy Chapter of the National Honor Society was established in October 2020. The National Honor Society is a national organization for high school students in grades 10-12. Selection into the society is based on four criteria: scholarship, leadership, service and character. Members are required to complete service projects and participate actively in chapter functions. All students in grades 10-12 with a GPA of 3.75 or higher have the opportunity to be inducted into the National Honor Society. A link to our chapter bylaws can be found below.
