New York Military Academy (NYMA) is a private boarding school in the rural town of Cornwall, 60 miles (97 km) north of New York City, and one of the oldest military schools in the United States. Originally a boys' school, it started admitting girls in 1975. On March 3, 2015, NYMA filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, facing serious financial difficulties from low enrollment. Instead of opening for the fall semester in September 2015, NYMA closed and was sold at auction to a group of Chinese investors who reopened the school in November 2015.
The structure of the Corps of Cadets is adjusted depending on the number of students enrolled at the academy. As a military school, the Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (JROTC) is a key component, and participation is required to graduate. The battalion has typically consisted of:

Command Staff
Band Company
Line Companies: Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, Foxtrot and Golf
Delta troop or "D-troop": a cavalry unit drawn from the equestrian program

Tarky Lombardi Jr., Class of 1947, politician
Jack Luden (1902–1951), silent film actor
Johnny Mandel, Class of 1944, Grammy- and Oscar-winning composer and arranger
Robert B. McClure, Class of 1915, general in U.S. Army
Joel Rivera (born 1978), politician
Alfred Sieminski (1911–1990, did not graduate), politician
Donald B. Smith, Class of 1965, general in U.S. Army
Stephen Sondheim, Class of 1946 (did not graduate), Tony-, Grammy-, Oscar- and Pulitzer-winning composer and lyricist
