Randolph-Macon Academy welcomed its first two Falcon Foundation Scholars in the fall of 2012. Since then, we have had over forty Falcon Scholars attend R-MA.
R-MA’s eight Falcon Scholars of 2020 all received appointments to the U.S. Air Force Academy.
R-MA has an established academic curriculum that successfully prepares students for all military service academies, including the United States Air Force Academy. The High Flight program at R-MA is a proven regiment that has resulted in acceptances to all the United States service academies. This curriculum has been tailored further for our Falcon Scholars to meet the expectations and demands of admission to the U.S. Air Force Academy.
Randolph-Macon Academy is the only Falcon Foundation School with a proven Air Force JROTC program. Randolph-Macon Academy has been home to VA-091st Air Force JROTC since the fall of 1975 and is the oldest co-educational Air Force JROTC program in the United States. The Air Force JROTC staff and cadet corps consistently attain the AFJROTC distinguished unit with merit distinction.
At Randolph-Macon Academy you will learn to live by the same Honor Code as applied at the United States Air Force Academy.
Air Force Leadership Training is instilled. Upon completion of Cadre Camp, every Falcon Scholar will be promoted to the rank of Cadet 2nd Lieutenant within the Corps of Cadets. They will be assigned to one of the flights as a Flight Adjutant and, along with the Flight Commander, will lead up to 30 fellow cadets in their daily activities.
A physical training program tailored to prepare Falcon Scholars for the DOD’s Candidate Fitness Test. All Falcon Scholars will participate in a fitness training program created to maximize their physical fitness score.
Every Falcon Scholar is mentored by an on-staff, Brigadier General. The mentors will advise the Falcons on the preparation needed to obtain an Air Force Academy appointment and to pursue a career in the United States Air Force.
Focus will be placed on each Falcon Scholar’s needs in the nomination, application, and appointment processes to the United States Air Force Academy.
