Overall Rating:

I was a cadet at WMA from 1974-1978. It was a unique environment. I have a lot of memories that I treasure, and some I wish I did not have. Since the school is closed as of May 2017, the review does not seem to matter.

Great college experience, but living there as a cadet is a regret. People can be kind, but they can also be vile when allowed to be.At least one of the stars is for the campus's beautiful historic architecture. Beautiful campus in a beautiful town.

This school is completely trash. They can't even manage their own students. The drugs are out of hand. Do not send your child to wentworth military academy. It's not what it really looks like online. Please take a moment and think about the decision of sending your child to this crack house. Your child will end up completely different. Druggy.

Overall Rating:

I loved the friendships I made most of all. The teachers were fantastic and left a lasting impression on me. I was blown away to learn that I loved something as simple as marching and being part of a team that strived to be the best we could be. It helped provide me a confidence and mental focus that has stuck with me ever since.
