Future US Service Academy preparatory students!


Thank you for your taking a look at the top US Service Academy Preparatory Program in the country!  I am the Director of the Program at the New Mexico Military Institute (NMMI), and I understand you are interested in how NMMI can help prepare you for an appointment to a United States Service Academy.  NMMI is the program of choice for the Merchant Marine Academy as well as for many preparatory students from the Naval Academy, West Point, the Air Force Academy, and the Coast Guard Academy because of the excellent academic, physical, and leadership preparation NMMI provides.  Not only is the program extremely challenging, it is also nationally recognized for its success; the Best Schools Blog rated NMMI among the top 5 two year programs in the country overall: (see link above), and CNN Money rated NMMI as the #2 program for success at a follow on university: (see link above). 


At NMMI you will be working with high caliber students from the US, and from around the world, who attend NMMI in order to best prepare themselves for success at their chosen academy.  We have first rate facilities designed to prepare you not only academically, but to help prepare you to meet the physical challenges you will face at the academies, and to give you a leg up on the leadership skills you will need to excel.  In the words of one of last year’s students, “I’ve almost had an unfair advantage coming out of NMMI because it taught me organizational and time management skills that most of the other kids have yet to possess.” - USMMA Prep, 2014 


If you have any questions or would like to know more about our outstanding program, please contact me at the number or email below.  I look forward to hearing from you!
