The Utah Military Academy (UMA) is a public charter school for grades 7 to 12. UMA will prepare our cadets as leaders to thrive in any competitive environment upon graduation with a focus on entrance into the military academies, ROTC scholarship programs in colleges and universities or other technically challenging opportunities related to the military culture. All of which result in maximizing their potential throughout life.
The military culture provides a basis for a structured academic environment within which students can receive a comprehensive program of instruction that will enable them to maximize their absolute potential. Key to the military culture is exceeding all previously known individual expectations in achieving “mission accomplished.” Every student can learn; every student can lead; every student has unlimited potential to excel. We will provide this disciplined, nurturing, engaging, and challenging environment within a military framework of instruction and culture. Our classwork include:
- College Prep with STEM
- Concurrent Enrollment
- AP Courses
We will provide a rigorous environment that focuses on aggressive academics, strong work ethic, leadership opportunities, physical engagement and task oriented assignments. We are dedicated to identifying the individual needs of all students, working to build the support mechanisms within the sphere of influence and ultimately working to change their mindset and expectations of achievement. This is critical to individual success and we insist that a military culture is a key component in that change.
Utah Military Academy goal is to create a unique opportunity for further eduation by helping admission to a United States Military Academy or to qualify for ROTC scholarships. This is why the current curriculum is so rigorous.
