Learn the basic facts about R-MA.
Located in Front Royal, VA, R-MA is an independent co-ed day and boarding school for students in grades 6-12. We do more than prepare our students for college; we give them a solid foundation in Knowledge, Leadership, and Character. We inspire the Rise within them, as we help them build their confidence, develop leadership skills, and discover a new level of potential.
With smaller classes--on average, 14-17 students per class--students at R-MA find themselves challenged. This is true for the students who are academically advanced as well as those who have to work hard for their grades. We are able to challenge our students while still building their confidence because our teachers care about each individual.
The results: the class of 2019 earned over $5.1 million in college merit scholarships! R-MA graduates are now enrolled in the Air Force Academy, University of Virginia, Northwestern University, MIT, Penn State, Virginia Tech, and other top colleges.

In the Air Force Junior ROTC program, students learn to be good citizens and great leaders. A military school provides structure to the students' daily lives; it also helps them develop confidence and self-discipline, both of which aid them in their academic studies.
At R-MA, we believe in a values-based education. Our mentoring programs and long association with the United Methodist Church help students become young men and women of strong, positive character. The Air Force JROTC also provides a foundation in this area, as the students learn the Air Force values of Integrity First, Service Before Self, and Excellence in All We Do.
