Camden Military Academy

Camden Military Academy is a college preparatory school for young men in grades 7-12. Located in historic Camden, South Carolina, Camden Military Academy provides young men with the opportunity to develop both academically and personally. Small classes, teacher supervised study periods, and tutorials focus each young man academically while the military program provides the framework for personal development. A full athletic program, clubs, and off-campus trips and outings make this a truly complete academic experience. As part of an over one-hundred-year-old tradition, Camden Military Academy provides young men of today with the time-honored foundation of a military education which will prepare them to meet the challenges of tomorrow.

While the Camden Military Academy tradition dates back to 1892, operations on the current campus began with the 1958-59 school year. The Academy combines the traditions of three institutions - Carlisle Military School, which operated in Bamberg, South Carolina, from 1892 to 1977; Camden Academy, which was located on the campus from 1949 to 1957; and Camden Military Academy.

Camden Military Academy has operated as a non-profit, tax-exempt institution since 1974 and is governed by a self-perpetuating board of trustees.

The Academy is a fully accredited member of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. It holds membership in the National Association of Independent Schools, the Southern Association of Independent Schools, the Palmetto Association of Independent Schools, and the Association of Military Colleges and Schools of the United States. The Corps' JROTC unit has received the Department of the Army's highest designation- Honor Unit With Distinction.

Camden Military Academy admits students of any race, color and national or ethnic origin.

South Carolina Act 56

(A56, R40, H3850)
AN ACT TO AMEND THE CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, BY ADDING SECTION 1-1-706 SO AS TO DESIGNATE CAMDEN MILITARY ACADEMY AS THE OFFICIAL STATE MILITARY ACADEMY.

Whereas, Camden Military Academy was founded in 1958 when it took over the defunct Camden Academy on the grounds of the former 64th Army Air Force (W.W. II) Training Detachment; and

Whereas, the academy educates boys into men of character and integrity in grades seven through twelve; and

Whereas, following a strict military regimen, Camden Military Academy builds leadership with emphasis on duty, integrity, morality, and self-discipline. With an active Cadet Corps of over three hundred, and Camden-Carlisle alumni in excess of six thousand, the academy is doing things right. The alumni count teachers, generals, scientists, business owners, musicians, artists, lawyers, doctors, television producers, legislators, and war veterans among its ranks. Utterly dedicated to the development of young men, Camden Military Academy has already demonstrated its long-standing commitment and willingness to uphold South Carolina's ideals of education, patriotism, gentlemanliness, and the best of character. Camden Military Academy is a life-changing experience. South Carolina is pleased to have the Camden Military Academy amongst its educational arsenal; and

Whereas, Camden Military Academy also carries on the living tradition of Carlisle Military School which was located in Bamberg County and founded in 1892; and

Whereas, Camden Military Academy desires to embellish upon the outstanding one hundred nine-year-old Camden-Carlisle legacy by seeking the honorary designation as the official military academy of the State of South Carolina. Now, therefore,

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
