A private, co-ed military boarding school in Front Royal, VA, for students in grades 6-12. R-MA is a college-prep school, and most students go on to college after graduation. A few go into the military.

The middle school is for kids in grades 6-12 and is structured but there is no military program. Students in grades 9-12 have to participate in Air Force JROTC, which at first worries some kids who never thought of being in the military, but it's not really that big of a deal. It's just a lot of marching and keeping uniforms straight, and teaching about citizenship and leadership. They do some college application work in the JROTC classes too.

The school is about 30% female and 70% male. About 80% of the students board. It's also affiliated with the United Methodist Church, and it has a flight program.
Mom 1: You're sending him WHERE?
Mom 2: Randolph-Macon Academy. It's a military school in Virginia.
Mom 1: What did he do?
Mom 2: LOL! Nothing, he just needs to bring his grades up and we think this will help. We want him to get into a good college.
Mom 1: And he agreed?
Mom 2: Yeah. They have a flight program, and he wants to learn to fly!
