Referral Program

Oak Ridge Military Academy offers a tuition discount of $1,000 for each new enrolled boarding student that a current family refers ($500 for each new enrolled day student), provided that the referring family stays in good standing with the school. 

Referral Process:

  • Reach out to friends and family that have a child who meets Oak Ridge Military Academy standards and would be a positive contributor to the Corps.

  • Share your positive experience with the school and encourage the new prospective family to reach out to the Admissions Office.

  • If the new prospective family chooses to apply, there will be a section on the application regarding a family referral- this section must be filled out to include your name in order to receive credit.

  • If the new family elects to enroll their son or daughter and they remain in good standing, the tuition discount will be applied to your cadets next school year!

 

Some important items of note:

  • The family referral section on the application must be completed at the time of submission. No retroactive credits will be awarded.

  • Credit will be issued on the next school year financial statement as a discount , and the new student must remain in good standing.

  • Second-Semester students will receive half of the original amounts.

  • This is a one time tuition discount, and will not roll over into future years.

  • Immediate family members do not qualify for a credit.

The limit for the number of credits one family can receive is 30, which would result in a $30,000 tuition discount for the current year. Let’s start spreading the word!

Oak Ridge took in a lost young man and helped make me the man I am today. I love and cherish that school; it made me a better person. ORMA has given me so much.
