There is a mature adult in each dormitory at all times to help the boys with their individual problems. Each cadet feels that he is a part of the organization. All staff officers know each cadet personally after a few weeks. The school functions smoothly and each cadet takes pride in his uniform and the school he represents.

Academics
Lyman Ward Military Academy is primarily a college preparatory school that instills in the students the value of - a good education in preparation for college and for life in general; hard work and self discipline; working together as a team as well as individually.

In accordance with the aim and purpose of the Academy, the importance of study and good study habits is emphasized. Study Hall is required of all students five nights a week for a period of two hours each night. Students can study with each other or they can go to the Library to do research or get assistance from an on-duty teacher.
