  • History & Memorable Moments

The Philippine Military Academy traces its history back to the Academia Militar which was established on October 25, 1898 at Malolos, Bulacan. The Academia was established by General Emilio Aguinaldo, the first president of the young Philippine republic and the school was meant as a training ground for future officers of the armed forces. Most of the Faculty members were former members of the Spanish Guardia Civil whom appointed by the government to train Filipino soldiers. It was forced to close down on January 20, 1899 as hostilities broke out between the Americans and Filipinos. [1]

An Officer's School of the Philippine Constabulary was established on February 17, 1905 within the walls of Intramuros in Manila. This school was later to be relocated to Baguio on September 01, 1908. After the Philippine Legislature passed Act No. 3496 on September 08, 1926, the school was renamed the Philippine Constabulary Academy and courses were lengthened from nine months to three years. [1]

When the National Defense Act was passed on December 21, 1936, the Philippine Military Academy was formally created and it was permitted to grant its graduates Bachelor of Science degrees after completion of their four-year courses. [1]

With the outbreak of World War II, training was disrupted at the PMA with Classes 1942 and 1943 being graduated prematurely and assigned to combat units in Bataan and other parts of the country. Many of these young officers perished in the war. [1]

After the war, the Academy was reopened on May 05, 1947, at Camp Henry T. Allen. But due to its increasing need for wider grounds, it was soon moved to its present location at Fort Del Pilar, Loakan, some ten kilometers from downtown Baguio. During the 1960s, since a need for more well-rounded individuals was found to be desirable, socio-humanistic courses were added to the school's curriculum. [1]

1993 proved a momentous year for the PMA as its first female cadets were admitted and specialization based on branch-of-service was introduced into the curriculum. [1]
