St. John's Northwestern Military Academy

St. John's Northwestern Military Academy (SJNMA) was founded in 1884 as St. John's Military Academy (SJMA) in Delafield, Wisconsin, by Rev. Sidney T. Smythe as a private, all-male college preparatory and leadership development school. In 1995, St. John's Military Academy merged with Northwestern Military and Naval Academy (NMNA) in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, to become St. John's Northwestern Military Academy on the Delafield campus. SJNMA is principally a boarding school for students in grades 7-12, but also has an active day program. The Academy also offers several summer programs including an adventure camp, summer school and English as a Second Language. The chapel service is mandatory at the academy and no AP courses is offered.

Beginning in summer 2018, SJNMA will welcome young women in grades 7-12 into its full academic and summer program offerings. In addition, SJNMA will be implementing a new corporate structure called St. John’s Northwestern Leadership Academies. Under this will be St. John’s Northwestern Military Academy, a coeducational military school, and two inaugural academies in the planning stages, English as a Second Language Academy and St. John’s Northwestern Summer Leadership Academy. The first new offering, English as a Second Language Academy, is slated to open in fall 2018 and will provide world class instruction in the English language to the already diverse international population on campus. This program will serve current cadets and it will be open to students from a civilian population housed on campus, wearing a specific uniform and adhering to a specific set of rules and discipline, but not participating in the Corps. The second new offering reorganizes and elevates the Academy’s currently successful summer programs into the St. John’s Northwestern Summer Leadership Academy beginning in summer 2019. This summer academy will serve boys and girls in grades one through 12 by offering a wide variety of carefully prepared and managed programs during the summer months, and includes the Academy’s summer academic and adventure camp programs.
