Signature Programs & Activities

At Lyman Ward Military Academy opportunity for growth isn’t limited to classrooms, dorms, and athletic fields—our signature programs provide plenty of additional opportunities for young men to discover their potential. Our goal is to provide students with a link between learning and doing by tying knowledge to hands-on experiences.

Youth today are navigating a world that’s becoming increasingly complex—where success is driven not only by knowledge but by the ability to enact that knowledge. Therefore it’s more important than ever to provide young men with hands-on experiences that will hone their ability to explore, to investigate, to make sense of information, and to solve tough problems. These are the skills gained through our signature programs.

When students have the vision to dream, we take it upon ourselves to provide them with the opportunity. This is what drives the implementation of signature experiences such as our Aviation Program—which provides our boys with the opportunity to (literally) soar to new heights. There is no comparison to the self-confidence and pride a young man exudes when he earns his pilot’s license before he is old enough to drive a car. At Lyman Ward this experience is possible.
