The AMA Alumni House and Museum is a hidden treasure among other historical sites in the Shenandoah Valley. With roots dating back to the Civil War, come learn about the long History of AMA and the Roller Family. AMA was called home by many young men that came from all parts of the world. In our museum you can see their achievements and explore the life of a cadet. Thanks to our Alumni, we have many artifacts that they have donated for the public to enjoy for their viewing pleasure. Think you have a connection? Check out our many yearbooks and find your cadet. You never know what you’ll find at AMA.

For Alum that visit this page, we are always looking for new information about the school and would love to hear from you!

  • A relic of the past. Interesting to see what it was like to have been a military school student in the 60s and 70s. Museum very interesting. Building next door makes for a great photo.
  • Beautiful grounds and great church services at Family camp for the Virginia District United Pentecostal Church International
