Missouri Academy

Alumni and Friends of the Missouri Academy (AFMA)

Missouri Academy graduates formed an alumni organization called the Alumni and Friends of the Missouri Academy (AFMA). AFMA was founded in 2015 by a group of Missouri Academy alumni who felt it was important to establish a "home" for alumni and to keep in touch. The Missouri Academy supports AFMA and hopes that more graduates can participate.

JR Robertson Jr., Class of 2012

JR Robertson Jr., Class of 2012

The Missouri Academy not only prepared me for college life following my 2 years at Northwest, but also for my career and life experiences. As an Academite, I took Calculus, Physics, Chemistry, and Genetics at the university level with other college students. Taking several math and science courses at a young, tender age taught me a couple different lessons. I definitely wanted to be an engineer. As a member of the Science Olympiad team and the Math club, I found a passion for the STEM field and it will stick with me forever. All in all, the Academy allowed me to discover my passion, provided a support system to do so, and groomed me to become an engineer that solves the world's most challenging problems.

I am a rising senior at Harvard University studying Sociology with a minor in Economics. During my time at Harvard, I have conducted research across a wide array of fields, interned in places like Switzerland and Rwanda, helped organize international conferences, and worked at several startup companies. As I now move on to the next phase of life after college, I am very thankful for my experiences at the Missouri Academy, they played a transformative role in shaping me into the person I am today and preparing me to excel. I will always treasure my time and the wonderful friendships that I made at the Academy.

As soon as I stepped into the building, I knew I had become part of the big and ever-growing Academy family. During my two years, I was also able to join Robotics and Science Olympiad, where I got to experience engineering hands-on and talk science with similar-minded people. My time at the Missouri Academy afforded me the opportunity to discover my true love and passion for physics. The Academy also provided me with an amazingly unique experience that not a lot of people get to enjoy.

Lorden Hoff, Class of '15

Following my graduation from the Missouri Academy, I enrolled into Washington and Lee University. I am currently pursuing a Bachelor's degree in biochemistry and Chinese. After graduating, I plan to attend medical school and become a cardiologist.

The Missouri Academy provided me wih opportunities and experiences, both academically and personally, that continue to influence me in my day-to-day life. The academics at the Missouri Academy challenged me to become more active and involved in my education. I was able to meet people from diverse backgrounds that were motivated and talented, many of whom I am still friends with today. The Missouri Academy encouraged me to seek out new interests and reignited my love of learning. I attribute my academic success and community involvement at my current university to the experiences I had at the Academy.
