Admissions Information:

We seek to enroll 7th to 12th grade students who have the greatest potential to successfully complete and benefit from a college preparatory education in a structured environment. The admissions process attempts to identify those students who meet our academic requirements and standards of character for enrollment.

The enrollment decision is based on academic potential as indicated by standardized testing, academic transcripts, evaluation of character references, personal abilities, attitudes, and talents. Though Oak Ridge is a much more individualized educational experience than most, the Academy is unable to personalize academic curriculum or behavioral standards for young people with special needs.


No better feeling than your child thanking you for giving them the opportunity to thrive. I'm so glad our daughter has a home away from home at ORMA.

John, parent

Admissions Procedures

Admission to Oak Ridge Military Academy comes after a formal review process by the Admissions Committee. A visit to the campus for a personal interview is strongly suggested, although it is not required. We do, however, require that each prospective student complete the Admissions Questionnaire.

  your child’s personality and behavior, for example: teacher, principal, guidance counselor, coach, pastor, 

-Copies of all school transcripts to date.

  determine admissions eligibility. An additional fee will be charged if a second review is required. Please
