Oak Ridge Military Academy, established in 1852, is located in Oak Ridge in Guilford County. In the early 20th-century, the school was hailed as one of the finest secondary schools in the country; that reputation for excellence continues into the 21st-century. This reputation extends beyond the state's borders, with approximately 240 members of the student body coming from 26 states and 20 foreign countries. Tuition is not cheap; the boarding program costs $19,990 and the day program $13,300. Oak Ridge is the nation's third oldest military school and has been designated a North Carolina Historical Site.
