History

Randolph-Macon Academy was founded in 1892 as a feeder school for Randolph-Macon College. The Academy is now independent of the college, with its own board of trustees. The school is still affiliated with the United Methodist Church. R-MA remains true to its roots of being a college preparatory school, and as part of that preparation, offers an Air Force JROTC program for students in grades 9-12.

Considering Financial Aid?

Schools administer their financial aid individually. The keys to seeking financial aid are:

  1. Planning, including dedicating time to sit-down and work through the paperwork and process
  2. Communicating with the admission and financial aid officers at the school
  3. Completing the paperwork and forms early and accurately (forms and paperwork can differ between schools)
  4. Meeting the financial aid deadline (it's early).
