Military Prep Schools for Boys
Military prep schools for boys usually focus on the secondary level and combine a military program and leadership training with a college preparatory curriculum. Some also have a Christian affiliation. Military prep schools may serve a male only or a co-ed population, and may be private or public.
Private military prep schools have, on the whole, a longer history in our country than public military prep schools. The oldest public military school is Georgia Military College (GMC) Prep School, established by the Georgia General Assembly in 1879. Franklin Military School (FMS), which claims to the be “first public military school” in the United States opened in 1980. Recently, more and more public military schools have sprung up. The charts below show school name, grades, population, and location for the public military prep schools for boys and the name, day/boarding information, grades, population, affiliation (if any), and location for private military prep schools for boys.
A number of the public schools have been reported not to have made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) under the No Child Left Behind Act, so be sure to check carefully on the school’s reputation and accomplishments before enrolling a child. In addition, one private military prep school, Victory Forge Military Academy in Florida, has had 35 allegations of child abuse from 1994 - 2008 and had its ability to care for the safety and welfare of children questioned by the Florida Department of Children and Families in a report issued in April, 2008, which is why it is not listed in the chart.
