Properly Equipping Young Men For Life

Choosing the right academics, structure, athletics, and environment for your son can be a challenge. We understand that many of our students come from unique backgrounds. Whether the young men interested in Southern Prep are in need of a change of scenery or feel a lack of structure and discipline in their daily routine, our academics and military environment often prove to be the perfect mix of structure, values, and peers those young men crave and need.

Southern Preparatory Academy is unlike other military academies. We place a focus on the individuals within our institution, providing them with the right classes, support systems, and structure they need to succeed, thrive, and ultimately graduate from our program with the tools they need to face life head-on.

The Southern Prep Experience

We are a community of students, faculty, and staff who know each other well, celebrate our victories, band together in times of challenge, and possess mutual respect for one another.

We believe that when your son becomes a part of our community, we become your extended family.

We support your continued involvement throughout your son’s experience, and we hope that you, too, will experience the strength of our community.

My son attended Southern Prep for one year and it changed his life for the better in many ways.

He came home eager to succeed. I'm very thankful for them.

Our sons have excelled greatly since enrolling in Southern Prep Academy in 2014. They've learned so much about becoming men and will continue to do so. The staff here is wonderful and the attention that each cadet gets is something you won't get in larger schools.

This school helped me so much. It kept me from getting in more trouble in my younger years, and things I learned here have carried over into my adult life, as well. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life!
