Camden Military Academy is a private military boarding school located in Camden, South Carolina, United States, and is the official state military academy of South Carolina. Camden Military Academy accepts male students in grades 7 through post-grad.
Camden Military Academy was founded as Camden Academy in 1950. Colonel James F. Risher, the president of Carlisle Military School, purchased the facility in 1958, and the name was changed to Camden Military Academy. His son Lanning P. Risher was the school's first headmaster and served in the position for 37 years. In 1974, Lanning Risher led Camden Military Academy through a reorganization as a non-profit, tax-exempt institution.
