Military schools are not like regular schools headed and run by a principal, teacher, or proprietor.

In this case, they are operated by military officers and personnel. Since the command/military secondary schools are established for students who want to further their education and pursue a career in the Nigerian Armed Forces, it is not strange to find regular students there.

Students who do not wish to work in the Nigerian Armed Forces in the future can attend the command secondary school for the benefit of acquiring or completing their secondary school education.


Like the federal and state government colleges, the military/command schools also have excellent and quality teachers who will teach your child, instill discipline and impact the proper knowledge into him or her.

The Nigerian military schools are associated with the Nigerian Armed Forces: Nigerian Navy, Nigerian Army, and Nigerian Air Force.

Furthermore, almost all military secondary schools are located in military or armed forces barracks, so the security of your child is guaranteed. Your child will be protected against external threats such as kidnappers.

Although the command secondary schools look similar to a military academy, the academic curriculum isn’t different from the standard curriculum made by the Ministry of Education. The school curriculum of the command secondary schools is the same as other secondary schools in Nigeria.
