Cadet Testimonials

It's true that Camden has a profound impact on the lives of young men. Read on for true stories of our cadets.

From a Camden Parent

“Our son is attending Camden Military Academy since 2012/2013. He started as a 7th grader. Since attending CMA his behavior and school work have improved significantly. Also he has become independent, responsible and confident. This program at CMA provided help on the subject he had a low on grade. The seniors helped improve his grades also. We found great a school for our son and we are proud of him. He is asking to continue until his senior year. We are very happy we found Camden Military Academy for our son. Poonam Patel”

From a Camden Parent
Vaniscak Family

“In September 2014 we decided to enroll our son into Camden Military Academy. It was a hard decision to make to send our baby boy to a school in another state. Although hard, I was told....."Tough Love Is the Hardest Love to Give, But the Most Rewarding" Our son is extremely smart and was facing to many peer influences. His grades were falling and his attitude was horrible. Within the last 8 months, we have see our son mature into a young man, his grades are awesome. He is planning for his college years now and looking forward to attending Camden for his Senior year. Still hard to have our son so far away, but all the sacrifices we have made have proven to be worth the emotional part of this process.”

Cam Walters, CMA Board of Trustees and CMA Class of ‘73

“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.”
