Falcon Scholars


As a Falcon Foundation Scholar, you are among an elite group with a superior academic track record and superb leadership skills. Your achievements and potential have been recognized by others, as evidenced by the fact that you received a nomination to the U.S. Air Force Academy. While it may be disappointing not to be one of those chosen to attend the U.S. Air Force Academy this fall, this in no way diminishes your accomplishments. It is a tremendous honor to be recognized as a Falcon Foundation Scholar.

At Randolph-Macon Academy, we are confident that this year of work between high school and the U.S. Air Force Academy will benefit you both academically and personally. Should you attend R-MA for this Falcon Foundation year, you will be given a leadership position within the Corps of Cadets. You will develop a stronger academic record through a curriculum that has been developed specifically to meet the U.S. Air Force Academy’s requirements. You will prepare physically in a way that will help you earn your maximum score on the Candidate Fitness Assessment (CFA). In short, Randolph-Macon Academy will prepare you for the challenges of the U.S. Air Force Academy. 

If you are interested in flying, Randolph-Macon Academy has its own in-house flight school. We own two Cessna 172 planes and the flight instructors are members of our faculty. You will have the opportunity to earn pilot hours during your year at R-MA.

R-MA is proud to be #1 Falcon Foundation School where all Falcons who matriculate to the U.S. Air Force Academy also complete and graduate from USAFA.  Such students include James E. Chase who was named the Top Falcon Scholar for Overall Performance in the Class of 2022 at USAFA. C1C Chase also holds the top slot in the ranking for Physical Education Average against his Falcon Scholar peers. Cadet Chase attended Randolph-Macon Academy in 2017-18.
