It was founded in 1994 by the Lithuanian Seimas, and is overseen by the Ministry of National Defense. Originally known as the Military Academy of Lithuania, it was renamed in 1998 in honor of General Jonas Žemaitis, a commander of the armed anti-Soviet resistance in Lithuania.
The Academy, comprising nine departments, also holds a library, a research center, sports complexes, a museum, and barracks.
It works in cooperation with other NATO countries, and has established relationships with the Virginia Military Institute, the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, and the École spéciale militaire de Saint-Cyr.
