Cadet Life

You will thrive in an environment of exploration and opportunity as you prepare for the challenges ahead. As an example, rather than denying use of cell phones or Internet access, you are taught to use these important tools responsibly. You will be guided and mentored to make wise decisions and good choices. When you graduate and reflect back on your time at Massanutten, your experiences here will help you to make better choices and to achieve greater success.
Every adult at MMA is a "teacher," and every moment is a "teaching" opportunity. You will be challenged and inspired to become a self-directed learner, excited and curious about the world we live in and all its possibilities. This culture permeates the campus and is foremost in our thoughts and actions.

Everything we do is aligned with our mission of producing confident, capable, and productive citizens.
