Why Wentworth?

We’re a modern, full-service Missouri community college and military high school that has been educating civilian and military leaders since 1880.

Wentworth Military Academy and College provides modern, full-service education for community college and high school students.

For Missouri community college students, we offer associate’s degree programs in business, arts and sciences, and other fields. Our military high school provides rigorous college-prep curriculum to students from across the United States.

We remain true to our tradition as a military academy by upholding values such as self-respect, perseverance, courage, integrity, and teamwork.

You’ll find those values in every Wentworth classroom, whether or not you enroll in our military programs. Learn the lessons of leadership that we’ve taught for more than a century—and discover why students of every type, military and civilian, begin their journey to success at Wentworth.

The aim of education is the knowledge not of facts but of values.
