Camden Military Academy (CMA) recently hosted 15 educational consultants and agents from around the globe. The agents hailed from China, Vietnam, Serbia and the Czech Republic. The educational agents wanted to visit CMA to see what the academy has to offer students from their countries who wish to study abroad.

Currently, CMA has 15 international cadets from 12 countries attending the academy.

“International cadets and their families contribute not only to the academy, but to the local economy and the Camden community. Personally, I think that it is very unique and pretty cool for a small, southern city to have such international diversity,” CMA Director of Admissions Casey Robinson said.

CMA Headmaster Col. Eric Boland welcomed the consultants to campus describing CMA’s plan for international cadets.

“We do not want international students to exceed more than 10 percent of our Corps of Cadets,” Boland said. “This allows the students to truly be immersed in the American culture and experience.”

The consultants were treated to a military parade in their honor, a campus tour and spent time with current cadets, teachers and staff.

“I was extremely impressed by the academy’s ambassadors, campus facilities and the local area,” Haihua Yu of China said. “We are looking forward to recommending CMA to many students in the near future.”
