MMA’s College Placement Office is staffed by a full time instructor whose sole purpose is to provide Cadets with individualized guidance on educational planning, scholarship and financial aid guidance, career counseling, and complete college application processing. With hundreds of catalogs and brochures from colleges and universities, over 150 on-campus video tours, dozens of reference books filled with college related information, internet connection for on-line research and applications, the college room provides Cadets complete college processing services. In addition, many college representatives visit the school each year to visit personally with the Cadets.
