Marine Military Academy

There is nothing so important and necessary to the future of our country than the development of ethical, moral, educated citizens. Regardless of economic collapse, war, disease or natural disaster, our country survives because its citizens shrug off their burdens and begin again. America is not a piece of land, nor is it an economic or political structure. America is its people.

The Marine Military Academy maintains the tradition of the United States Marine Corps coupled with a superb educational environment to develop morally strong, ethical, educated young men. Whether in the classroom, chapel, sporting events or strenuous physical exercises, our students constantly receive disciplined, structured training; ethical, moral and spiritual philosophy, and programs designed to develop courage, character and leadership.

The Academy was founded in 1965 by Captain William A. Gary, businessman and retired Marine Corps Reservist, who believed that Marine Corps concepts of leadership and discipline were adaptable to preparatory school education. In 1965, he and other former Marine officers opened a school in Harlingen, when a former US Air Force Base became available. The school aims to provide a wholesome, patriotic, and invigorating atmosphere in which students are inspired towards maximum achievement. Academic excellence is the first priority while also stressing the development of character, leadership and esprit de corps and a strong devotion to country, through values and principles derived from the U. S. Marine Corps and a vigorous athletic program.

Marine Military Academy is a nonprofit corporation governed by a Board of Trustees. The school has over 2000 alumni who assist in recruiting, development of school programs and fund raising.

The Academy is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. It holds membership in the Southern Association of Independent Schools, the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools, and the Association of Military Colleges and Schools of the United States.
