Military careers

For students considering a career in the military…

Attending our Military Academy does not obligate you to join the military after graduation. However, if you aspire to a U.S. service academy appointment, or ROTC scholarship, St. John’s Northwestern offers preparation you can’t get elsewhere. Our prestigious program is built around the JROTC curriculum, and it gets results:

  • JROTC Honor Unit with Distinction, the highest ranking
  • 100% JROTC accreditation score
  • #1 in Wisconsin for USMA appointments
  • Military Academy graduates have earned millions in ROTC scholarships

“SJNMA is the only high school in Wisconsin with a graduate in every class [at West Point], including 2022. This is a great testament to the academic program and leadership development training of SJNMA.”
