SJNMA School Profile

St. John's Northwestern Military Academy is a private, college preparatory and leadership development school that combines personalized academic instruction, mandatory participation in athletics, ongoing instruction in ethics and values, and a structured, military-style environment that together allows students an opportunity to achieve at their full potential. Our goal is to prepare cadets for success in life by instilling in them a solid work ethic, an understanding of the value of integrity and teamwork, and the ability to think critically, communicate well, and function in a diverse and ever-changing world.

Since 1884, the school has been developing the minds and shaping the character of young people from around the country and around the world, many of whom have gone on to achieve great success. Our alumni include heads of state, key business leaders, professional athletes, accomplished artists, statesmen and politicians, and a variety of others who have made important contributions to a broad spectrum of society.

The Academy is principally a boarding school for young men and women in grades 7 through 12, but has an active day program for those grades as well.
