Academic success is at the core of what Wentworth values for her cadets and students. We grant a high school diploma for our 9-12th graders and three Associate's degrees for our college programs. Our cadets and students are pre-veterinary, pre-nursing, pre-engineering, homeland security and criminal justice to name a few areas of interest.
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. The college placement program provides for class and group counseling during the eighth, ninth and tenth grades and intensive individualized scheduled counseling in the junior and senior year.

At Fishburne, young men learn discipline and leadership skills that will serve them throughout their lives.
Robert Land Academy enrolls approximately 125 young men each year in grades 5 through 12.  Eighty percent come from across Canada, with the remaining 20% coming from the United States, Germany, Hong Kong, China, Mexico, The Caribbean and elsewhere around the world.  They represent a broad diversity of ethnic and religious backgrounds.
