Delaware Military Academy

The Delaware Military Academy is a publicly funded charter high school in Wilmington, Delaware. The Academy was founded in 2003. All students are required to participate in the Naval Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps, or NJROTC. It enrolls about 560 cadets in grades nine through twelve, and enjoys academic recognition from the state of Delaware and the United States Navy. As it is a public charter school, there are no admission requirements. The school utilizes an application and interview, but its selections are governed by charter school law

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.

Our mission is to prepare young men and women for their next level of education and to provide them with a foundation that leads to good citizenship.  In addition, we will furnish them with a healthy mental and physical environment with military training as a requisite for a better understanding of the obligations of citizenship and self-discipline and to afford them opportunities for proper social activities and exposure to moral ideas
