Porterville Military Academy (PMA)
PMA provides realistic applied leadership challenges in a rigorous academic setting to mold students to be model, civic-minded professionals that are tomorrow’s public service, business and civic leaders.
Regardless of career aspirations, success will require you to be a person of character, to be committed to the cause, to have perseverance to see the job through, to function as part of a team and when the time comes, lead your team by providing purpose, motivation and direction.  Porterville Military Academy uses a military structure to maximize the opportunities for realistic applied leadership experiences.  Such experiences will mold our students into civic-minded, professionals with the skills and knowledge to not only be successful in any endeavor, but to be the effective leader that allows for your team's success.
