Utah Military Academy exists to serve the interest of students who desire a military environment. We will create this environment with a base of a strong, experienced board of directors, dedicated school leadership, and committed parents and community, who will support the work of changing students into cadets. We will demand a great deal of the cadets, and will support them at every turn in a task oriented process that ensures growth towards goals.
We will develop a strong set of Core Commitments for the cadets that will include:
We will provide a strong military culture:
We will provide a 'no excuses' academic environment of excellence:
We will work with the family and community:
These areas encompass all aspects of the Utah Military Academy and will provide the framework within which our cadets will maximize their individual abilities.
The Utah Military Academy will prepare 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
Utah Military Academy recognizes academic excellence is a requirement for admission to a United States Military Academy or to qualify for ROTC scholarships. In order for students to be fully prepared for its rigorous high school curriculum, the school will admit students beginning in seventh grade in order to build and strengthen necessary academic skills.
We will also engage the family and community in supporting this culture both on campus and off. An important part of program implementation is the hiring and development of our professional staff. We recognize that many of the finest teachers may not have a military background, which will first entail a strong exposure and then complete adoption of culture among staff. It is from the demonstrated leadership of our staff that culture will be shared with cadets, family, and community
