125th Anniversary

Celebrating 125 years of college-prep education, standing on a proud heritage and a promising future: Randolph-Macon Academy

The Early Years

Founded in 1892 as an all-boys college-prep school, Randolph-Macon Academy was one of two feeder schools for Randolph-Macon College. 


Following a period of great success, a fire decimated the main building and the Great Depression hit. But Randolph-Macon Academy survived.

Social Changes

Social changes and the Vietnam War changed the path of military schools. R-MA became co-ed and switched to Air Force JROTC.

Modern Era

Today, Randolph-Macon Academy is one of the best college-prep military schools in America, with 100% of graduates accepted to college each year. Take a look at our news blog to find out what's happening at your Academy!
