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.
