About DMA

The Delaware Military Academy is the only charter high school in the United States based on the traditions, values, and ideals of the U.S. Navy. Although academics are the backbone of any educational organization, leadership is the muscle of DMA. Cadets learn through a structured, traditional military school environment including self-discipline, motivation, and activities that enable our students to become productive citizens in a vastly changing technological society.

philosophy

Our academic, extra-curricular, and leadership programs create a well-rounded learning experience that develops honor, discipline, and integrity. Cadets will cultivate strength of character, individual excellence, and responsible leadership. Upon graduation, Cadets will be prepared to lead lives of academic, personal, and professional achievement.
