Welcome to the Academics Home Page of New Mexico Military Institute.

Mission: The mission of the Dean of Academics is to sustain excellence in learning that is the foundation of the New Mexico Military Institute (NMMI).

As a premier New Mexico educational institution, NMMI’s most distinctive feature is its continuing commitment to excellence in educating the “whole person.”

As an institution of higher and secondary education, the Institute has the mission of developing leaders by enabling individual development through challenging academic preparation in a structured learning environment that affords extensive opportunities.


  • NMMI’s small class sizes, low student to teacher ratio, enable our faculty to interact closely with cadets, both inside and outside of the classroom.
  • The average ACT score for graduating seniors is above both the national and state averages.
  • Each cadet is assigned an academic advisor who monitors their progress, assists them in getting the most out of the educational experience, and helps them identify and gain acceptance to a college or university of their choice.
  • The tenured members of NMMI’s faculty, all of whom hold Ph.D.’s and Master’s degrees, are renowned for teaching excellence, mentorship of students, scholarly engagement, and commitment to each cadet’s success.
