I currently attend this school. You have to apply in the 9th grade because you have to go through the jrotc program. You have to start the program on ninth grade or you will be behind and you can't be behind in that curriculm. I'm so sorry.

Thanks for the sharing I know this is kind a off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My site goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!

Elverson is providing new and exciting education and fun based programs for students. I would like to attend this school, next school year. I'll be in the 10th grade. And I have thoughts of attending the army. But, my former school won't accept any questions. Or give any basic information. I think I can benefit from this Academy!

Hello everyone, I'm planning on attending Philadelphia Military Academy for my 2013-2014 school year. I had gotten accepted and received my check list envelope. My only question is, why do so many people write negative comments instead of not writing anything at all? If you don't have any positive about Philadelphia Military Academy, then do comment anything. Plus, majority of you people can't even spell nor have grammar skills.

Your new Principal is from the other PMA and she is horrible. I wish you guys luck and pay close attention to those teachers and aids who were not there last year, Delarge is another one who works under her one of her do what ever she says followers. Do research and you will see that she has had many complaints since she began working for PMA in 2010 and before at William Penn High School. There Principal before then was great and I was very sorry to see him go.
