Culver Military Academy and Culver Girls Academy, together known as the Culver Academies, make up one of the leading private college preparatory boarding schools in North America. Located in Culver, Indiana, they share a beautiful 1800 acre campus on the shores of Lake Maxinkuckee in Northern Indiana.
The Culver Mission for both The Culver Academies and the Culver Summer Schools and Camps reads:
"Culver educates its students for leadership and responsible citizenship in society by developing and nurturing the whole individual - mind, spirit, and body - through an integrated curriculum that emphasizes the cultivation of character."
Consistent with that mission of educating students for leadership and responsible citizenship in society, we believe what distinguishes Culver from other fine secondary schools is that while it offers academics, athletic, and other extracurricular opportunities second to none, Culver is the leader in delivering practical experience and instruction in leadership for all students and emphasizing high expectations for personal responsibility and integrity. We seek to teach and develop the leadership principles that apply to leaders in all walks of life.
