Description

Culver Military Academy and Culver Girls Academy compose Culver Academies, one of the leading college preparatory boarding schools in North America. We are located in Culver, IN on a beautiful 1,800-acre campus on the shores of Lake Maxinkuckee. Our students pursue a rigorous college-preparatory curriculum while becoming responsible citizens and leaders. The diverse student body includes representatives from 24 countries and 40 states. Consistent with the Culver mission of educating students for leadership and responsible citizenship in society, we believe what distinguishes Culver from other fine secondary schools is that while we offer academic training and extracurricular opportunities that are 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. The leadership principles we teach and develop are those that apply to leaders in all walks of life.

Unique Characteristics

Since 1897, our Horsemanship Program has been teaching students Culver values and virtues by placing them on one of our 94 horses. Here, students can take beginning, intermediate, and advanced equitation; horse training or stable management. Students can also participate in one of our four equestrian teams or 3 honor units.
