Oldest Mid Atlantic Boarding School With Military Leadership Training
Founded in 1836, Carson Long Military Academy is the nation’s oldest boarding school to provide military training. Our college and career preparatory curriculum prepares young men of character and quality for college, military service, gainful employment, and service to their communities.
Enrolling boys in grades 6-12, Carson Long provides a safe, supervised campus environment; small classes that allow for individualized instruction; and a variety of academic enrichment opportunities, leadership activities, and educational and recreational programs.
Carson Long was first established as Bloomfield Academy in 1836. It was incorporated as a federally tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization in 1920, and has been a continually accredited member of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools since 1929.
Carson Long is a member of the Association of Military Colleges and Schools of the United States, the National Association of Independent Schools, and the Pennsylvania Association of Independent Schools. Carson Long Military Academy is governed by a 15-member Board of Trustees.
Since 1836, Carson Long Military Academy has been providing a high quality education to young people around the world. Our goal is to teach each cadet to “choose the harder right instead of the easier wrong” so all can become globally responsible citizens.
