As you know military schools are not anything but a boarding school with some army traditional training programs and that some of them are really old. Here we have the oldest military schools in the United States of America. We have considered as date of foundation the year that schools have traditionally listed as the official year of their founding.
1. Carson Long Military Institute. Founded in 1842. It is located in Pennsylvania, it is a boys only school and they offer scholarships to best students.
2. Oak Ridge Military Academy. This military school located in North Carolina was founded ten years later, in 1852. In this institution there is a teacher per every seven students, 20 % of them come from outside the States.
3. Fishburne Military School, the oldest of Virgina military schools was established in 1879, offers classes from 7 to 12 grade for only 200 students.
4. Wentworth Military Academy & College, founded in 1880, is the only coed military academy in the Midwest. 200 military girls and boys study there every year grades 9-12 with a teacher-student ratio of 1:10
5. The Howe School and Summer Camp. This military school located in Howe, Indiana was founded in 1884. It is affiliated with the Episcopal Church for grades 5-12. Nestled on a 100 acre park-like setting, Howe is located in northeast Indiana’s beautiful lake country.
