Our son was not performing the best at his old school, but at ORMA, the teachers and staff provided the much needed structure and discipline he needed to excel. He loved the academics and he found learning to be fun. After 1 month and as a junior in high school, he joined the National Guard. Our son graduated in May 2016. He was accepted to The Citadel and VMI with a full scholarship and chose The Citadel. We will forever be grateful to ORMA and what it represents in providing a unique learning environment. If you feel your child is not performing at his/her best and doesn’t fit in to the standard school structure, then I would encourage you to check out ORMA. I’m not sure we would be where we are today if it were not for this school.

When Payden came to ORMA, she not only succeeded, she thrived and grew into her confident self again. I appreciate the patience you have shown when I felt so far away from her and needed your help. You have done a great job in every aspect of her life and now next year her brother will join the ORMA family. Being a single mom, I need the leadership and discipline your school offers. I trust you with the jewels of my heart. We never know what God has waiting for us, but I consider this one of my biggest blessings. You gave our family something you can never imagine. We are whole again.

Enclosed is a gift for the academy in appreciation for the care and attention that was given our daughter, Mary Claire. Oak Ridge’s mission and philosophy did prepare Mary Claire for college and life. She will always remember the school as “home” and the faculty and staff as “family.”

I noticed a great change in David’s attitude and behavior over this past Easter break. Thank you.


I wanted to extend my compliments to you as the commandant. Your efforts and duty are way and beyond the call of duty. Your job is the most difficult in the academy. I think your wisdom is unsurpassed as to the cadets and their psychological potential reality in this difficult world. Please forward this message to the new president. If you don’t, I will.


The school is doing a great job, and I want to voice my appreciation especially to you for having an open door policy and hearing my concerns. You’ve not only heard my concerns, you’ve addressed them and made changes accordingly. This is why my son attends ORMA and will do so until graduation. Keep up the good work and again, thank you.
