Here’s a throwback for you: a picture of Donald Trump from his teenage years attending the New York Military Academy.
As a young boy, Donald Trump was an energetic and assertive child and his worried parents sent him to the New York Military Academy at 13, hoping the school would channel his energy in a more positive manner. The school’s discipline did do him good and Trump went on to earn academic honors and even played in the varsity football and baseball teams, the latter of which he captained in 1964.
After graduating from NYMA he attended Fordham University but only spent two years there before transferring to the Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania were he graduated in 1968 with a degree in Economics.
