Established in 1909, Hargrave Military Academy has a long history of providing quality education in a military school setting. A Hargrave education is not limited to the classroom, but extends deeply into the areas of character development, leadership, spiritual growth and athletics.
Hargrave works hard to continually improve the quality of education delivered to its Cadets. Over the last ten years, this effort has been vast. From a campus wide wireless network accessing research databases, the Internet and eBooks from both classrooms and Cadet rooms; to brand new campus space and labs; to an entirely new way to teach middle school students (CIS program); to College Placement, Hargrave has run the range.
While Hargrave has acquired exciting new teaching tools and methods, by far the Academys greatest asset remains the schools faculty and staff. Hargraves faculty and staff engage the Cadets continuously both in and out of the classroom. Our Instructors are knowledgeable, thoughtful and honestly push young men within their respective subject areas. They care enough to hold the line and raise the bar on your sons academic effort. Outside of the classroom, Instructors, along with coaches and staff members work with our young men to maintain focus on Study Hall and to continually strive for better grades.
Hargrave Military Academys faculty and administration approach each student holistically. Students who are physically, morally, and mentally fit are in a better position to make sound decisions, establish personal goals, and become productive citizens. The Academys daily schedule is designed to develop each students mental, physical, spiritual, and moral qualities. Hargraves educational philosophy is anchored in a traditional college preparatory curriculum aimed at enabling critical thinking and inspiring a desire to learn within a diverse student body.
