Wentworth Military Academy & College

We are a private co-educational boarding military high school and two-year college. For 9th-12th graders, Wentworth provides an exemplary college-prep education, which builds self-discipline and self-confidence. In our college, small class sizes and personal interaction with faculty allows our traditional and military students to achieve success in academics and in life. Wentworth is one of only five schools in the country to offer a commission as a second lieutenant in the United States Army after just two years of college.

Established in 1880, Wentworth provides a high quality education to our young men and women. The military environment allows our cadets to learn and practice the basics of leadership each and every day, developing important skills they carry with them the rest of their lives. All of Wentworth’s students participate in athletics. A clear set of rules means our cadets are free to focus on achievement without the distractions so common in most schools today. Wentworth produces mature young men and women who are self-motivated, well-educated, highly principled, self-confident, respectful of others, and loyal to family, friends, and country.
