St. John’s Northwestern

Military Academy




A primary goal of St. John’s Northwestern Military Academy is to teach boys, and help develop them into young men, a goal we have been accomplishing since 1884. In a changing world that is constantly becoming more globally integrated, we feel it is important to understand the cultures of others. Last school year, SJNMA was the proud home to 120 international cadets from 12 countries worldwide.
