Middle School

RMA’s middle school is characterized by a robust learning experience for boys in sixth through eighth grades. Single gender, small class sizes, and a focus on building relationships between faculty and students create an environment that fosters intellectual curiosity and a love of lifelong learning. Using principles in single gender teaching from The Gurian Institute, teachers incorporate hands-on teaching, problem solving, and collaborative exercises that reach across the curriculum. 
 
At RMA the middle school is a distinct learning and boarding experience separate from the high school (grades nine through twelve), and students may choose to board or commute as day students. The middle school uniform distinguishes students from upper school cadets, and a separate schedule for classes, meals, athletics, and co-curricular activities ensures that middle school students’ social, physical, mental, and academic needs are met. 
 
The curriculum is designed to prepare middle school students for the rigor of RMA’s college prep program. JROTC is taught at the high school level only, but middle school students will be introduced to the fundamentals of military-style leadership. Qualified middle school students may choose to take advanced courses.
