St. Catherine's recognizes the important role that athletics plays in the development of a well-rounded young man. Our physical education program and championship athletic teams seek to develop skills and capabilities that reach far beyond the athletic field.
Through the main gate of campus, the Teardrop (named for the shape of the area) welcomes visitors with over 150 flags donated by alumni, friends, and family of St. John's Military School. Vanier Academic Center faces the main gate.
Community service is taught, not required, at Randolph-Macon Academy. While there is no requirement for graduation, students are given many opportunities to serve their community, both on-campus and in the town of Front Royal. In this photo, students are helping to match wish-lists with toys in the local Toys for Tots program.
Our oceanfront campus is a major draw. Located in sunny San Diego, California, our school offers private beach access. We're the only military school in the country with a surf team! There's nothing like relaxing at the beach after a long day of classes.
TEAMWORK!! A lesson better learned outside the classroom. Involvement in extra curricular activities (clubs, sports or band) is not an option because these activities often teach valuable life lessons.
Also unique to the VFMA educational experience, our academically qualified high school juniors and seniors are granted the opportunity to enroll in college level classes, taken at Valley Forge Military College, on campus.
A strong focus on foundational skills applied in academic courses provides students with opportunities for Canadian, US and world-wide university and college entrance. The Academy also offers foundational courses in English and Math for grades 5-10. These remedial courses allow boys who are behind in core subjects to make significant gains and catch up academically.
All Marine Military Academy (MMA)Cadets participate in public parades held throughout the year. All parades are held on the MMA Parade Grounds directly adjacent to the Iwo Jima Monument, located at 320 Iwo Jima Boulevard in Harlingen, next to Valley International Airport. MMA’s Honor Band and Silent Drill Team performs at most parades with the exception of summer camp and introductory training graduations.
