Homs Military Academy is a military educational and training institution located in Homs, Syria.

Homs Military Academy was founded in 1933 by France during the French Mandate of Syria and Lebanon. It is the oldest and largest service institution. At first, it was primarily an academy for infantry officers, while graduates who selected the other services went on to additional specialized training at other army-operated specialist schools. Graduates were often elected for a military academy in the Soviet Union.
