Georgia Military College, Old Georgia State Capitol, Milledgeville, Georgia
Georgia Military College (GMC) is a United States Military Junior College, high school, and middle school in Milledgeville, Georgia. GMC is one of five military junior colleges that participates in the Army's Early Commissioning Program. Cadets who graduate from GMC's two-year, military science-oriented curriculum receive an officer's commission in the U.S. Army. Although GMC is a state funded institution, it is not part of the University System of Georgia or the Technical College System of Georgia. The junior college was established in 1879, and later added a preparatory school for students in sixth grade through twelfth grade.
The main campus in Milledgeville serves approximately 275 full-time, resident ROTC students (the Corps of Cadets) and several hundred commuter students. GMC's five centers and two extension offices in other parts of Georgia serve nearly 4,000 students.
GMC's military preparatory school for commuter students in and near Baldwin County has approximately 250 middle school students and 250 high-school-level Army Junior ROTC (JROTC) Cadets. The preparatory school's ACCEL Program (formerly known as Joint Enrollment) enables qualified seniors to attend classes at the junior college and the high school simultaneously, while earning credit for both their high school diploma and their college degree. The ACCEL Program is administered by the Georgia Student Finance Commission.
