About Us!

The Bridgeport Military Academy offers students the opportunity to experience their secondary education in a challenging environment with an emphasis on excellence in academics while also exploring careers in public safety.  

Through partnerships with Fire, Police, Homeland Security, Military Services and other public safety departments, students are provided real world, hands-on opportunities to get trained and certified in such areas as CPR, First Aid, FEMA courses, 911 Communications, and be offered physical training, community volunteer opportunities and internship programs.  

Bridgeport Military Academy cadets select a themed career pathway as a First Responder will be engaged in studying a variety of topics within the listed areas of the Public Safety field.

Courses will require students to take an active role in hands on activities, be critical thinkers, effective communicators, and disciplined in their daily behavior. This will allow the development of an understanding of the "rank structure" that is required in these career fields. Cadets will be prepared for these and other careers and higher education opportunities.
