Program 2

Wentworth Military Academy

Wentworth Military Academy is an academically rigorous residential high school program with a military theme, where students are responsible for developing values such as leadership, discipline and integrity. The high school offers a college preparatory program while instilling military ideals of leadership, service to others, achievement, and teamwork. The Junior ROTC program is required of all students. Its mission is to ""motivate young people to be better citizens"". Topics include citizenship, health, self-development, and military education. Class sizes are small, allowing instructors to focus on their students' educations. Extra opportunities are allowed for students who may need help with coursework, and all cadets are required to attend mandatory study periods during the evening. High school juniors and seniors, who excel in academics, may be dual-enrolled in junior college classes, allowing them to complete at least a year of college credits by the time they graduate from high school.
