AMFRA is a tuition-free, military and first responders college preparatory academy. We offer a unique learning culture with a safe environment, high academic standards, student uniforms, smaller classes, and personalized learning plans designed to provide individual attention.
Learning is easier when you have an excellent teacher. As such, AMFRA ensures that its educators are all state-certified with an advanced degree or are in the process of achieving an advanced degree. Our teaching faculty are passionate about helping students and bring this enthusiasm into the lessons.
We offer a state-approved, college preparatory curriculum designed to successfully prepare students for their Post-high school experiences. Our core curriculum has a special STEM emphasis on pre-engineering and computer coding. Additionally, we facilitate a JROTC framework for developing leadership and team-building skills with a special concentration on first-responder electives.
Our objective is to instill and promote in our students, through academic culture, the pursuit of excellence in all aspects of their lives. Encouraging critical thinking, emphasizing the learning process over rote memorization, and fostering individual and collective leadership development, accountability, and discipline will empower our students with the skills and abilities needed in today’s ever-advancing world.
To the Little Rock Community,
Welcome to the Arkansas Military & First Responders Academy (AMFRA)! As the Commandant of Arkansas’ first military and first responders academy, I am grateful for the opportunity to serve our community in a capacity that directly impacts our most valuable resource, our youth.
As a Little Rock native and Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Marine Corps, I am passionate about serving our great nation and treasured local community. Being a firm believer in the saying, “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” I make a concerted effort to demonstrate my innate concern for my fellow mankind. AMFRA is a school that cares about its faculty and teachers, community, and most importantly, its students. Every child deserves a quality education in a safe environment with teachers and faculty who have a genuine desire to support their students’ character development and academic growth. AMFRA is committed to empowering our students with the resources needed to meet future challenges and embrace opportunities that will propel them to become global leaders of tomorrow.
We look forward to welcoming our 9th graders in the summer of 2023. Until then, I encourage you to click here to join our mailing list to stay up to date on events and the development of the academy.
