Our Curriculum

The well-rounded academic curriculum at the Academy is one of the pillars upon which our tradition has been built. Students will be challenged in a manner that promotes critical thinking, self-reliance and accountability. Our alumni frequently confirm that their four years at the Academy provided them with a sizable advantage in their collegiate undergraduate and graduate studies.

Our administration and department chairs work continuously to craft a well-rounded, modernized curriculum that promotes scholarship and rewards diligence. We recognize that, above all, our students are here to learn. The Academy experience ensures that our campus, facilities and personnel create the perfect environment for that learning to happen.
