Spirit and tradition are always alive at SMA.
So much of a student's success in school can be related to their peers. Our students come from all walks of life with the common goal of reaching their highest potential personally and academically. As a community, they encourage each other to greater success.
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.
Respect! Integrity! Success! Earn it at Hargrave!
Our 860 acre campus is comprised of breathtaking panoramic vistas; rustic hiking trails; a serene pond for swimming and fishing; and abundant seasonal foliage.
Our lake offers students a chance to relax, fish, canoe - in the center of campus.
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.
The Bell on Suffield's Bell Hill is a central school symbol. All students ring it after receiving their Suffield diplomas at Commencement, and victorious athletic teams ring it throughout the year.
Webb students can enjoy class outside on the beautiful, 150 acre, campus.
The cadets in parade formation. The first full dress parade of the year begins usually at the end of April and is on Sunday.
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.
At MMA, students can broaden their skills and experiences. Elective courses and activities include band, drama, chorus, art and web design. Outside of the classroom, students can earn a private pilot's license via our aviation program. SCUBA, WWII reenactment, rifle team, photography and fencing...these are just a few more unique activities available to cadets.
