New Mexico Military Institute participates as a receiving school for the Service Academy Preparatory Programs.   To learn more about our program select the options on the left side of the page.

What NMMI is, and is not:

We are a fully accredited college whose course credits will transfer to other universities; we are not a 5th year of high school.

We offer a full range of cadet activities (such as SCUBA diving, paint ball, and the aero club); we are not a year-round "boot camp".

We are located in a small CITY with familiar (nationally known chains of) hotels, stores, and restaurants. We have jet air service to Dallas TX at our airport. We are not in an isolated, out-of-the-way location for family visits.

We have a drug-free, tobacco-free, alcohol-free school where all students are required to live on campus. We are not "party central".

We have varied athletic facilities including an 18-hole golf course, year-round in-door swimming pool, racquetball and tennis courts, and a gym stocked with the latest equipment for weight training and aerobics. We do not ignore the "body" while only training the "mind".

We believe in building character and leadership skills through positive encouragement, acceptance of responsibility,and self discipline; we do not believe in the physical or mental hazing of cadets.

We have been training cadets since 1891; we are not a recent entry into the "Prep Market".

We have full-time (24/7) coverage by Commandant's staff members, Campus Police and medical staff. When it comes to cadet safety and security we are not "part time".

Our "Corps of Cadets" IS the student body; not a small minority or special interest group on campus.
