Campus Hill, Alabama

Founded in 1898, Lyman Ward Military Academy is an all-male boarding military boarding school for children in grades 6 through 12. The program is designed to foster good character and attitude though a traditional, well-rounded military education that testimonials indicate has fostered emotional maturity. They seem to work well with students that are floundering, rather than acting out.

President of Lyman Ward Military Academy, Colonel Albert W. Jenrette, MA, served two tours of duty in Vietnam prior to becoming a JROTC instructor at the Academy. He then served the British Army of the Rhine in Rheindahlen, Germany and was the Senior Army Advisor for the 63rd Army Reserve Command in Los Alamitos, California before retiring from the military. He worked for several years in the private sector before his appointment as President of the Academy in 2007. The program is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.

Lyman Ward Military Academy uses "traditional values" based education with a focus in college preparatory education. A curriculum of academics, athletics, and leadership skills help prepare the students for later life through instilling discipline, honor, intellect, physical fitness, coordination, and responsibility. Athletic participation is considered a vital part of the total education and the program offers a variety of competitive sports. Students are also required to attend non-denominational church services on Sunday to encourage personal growth.

The campus is situated on 320 acres in rural Alabama. The rural setting provides opportunities for outdoor recreation such as fishing and camping. The campus also includes a recreational canteen area with billiards and table tennis and hosts other social events for the students' enjoyment.
