Royal Military College (RMC), also known as Maktab Tentera Diraja (MTD) was established on 3 July 1952. As inspired by the then Malaya High Commissioner, Field Marshall Tun Sir Gerald Templer, RMC aims to prepare young Malaysians to take their places as officers in the Malaysian Armed Forces, in the higher divisions of the public service and as leaders in the professional, commercial and industrial life of the country. Embracing the slogan "SERVE TO LEAD", it is also the mission of the school to provide a comprehensive smart learning environment to develop leaders with calibre, high integrity and noble personality to serve in the public and corporate sector.

Uniquely set in a multiracial context, students aged 16 to 19, are put through an active menu of training, combined with classes, games, extra-mural activities and prep work. These training and education inculcated self-discipline, self-reliance and self-confidence. Experience of living together in a multi-cultural and multi-religious society develops tolerance, empathy, trust, strong moral values and camaraderie. Dynamic and distinguished mentors and teachers impressed upon them the meaning of integrity, courage, loyalty and honour. Together, they have successfully produced a new generation of leaders and have achieved scholastic excellence with a relentless spirit of high-self-esteem to see through the tough to become the prominent. Graduates of the school have taken positions as ministers, secretary-generals, chiefs of Armed Forces, academicians, heads of non-governmental organizations, chief executive officers of companies, sportsman and international artist.

RMC receives authorization to become an IB World School on 3 July 2015 to implement the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) and has its first cohort of DP students on 10 August 2015. To enable RMC to continue to produce leaders of tomorrow, we need to rededicate ourselves to the spirit of the founding charter. Having the IB Learner Profile in mind and empowered by the mission of the International Baccalaureate, RMC now aspires to develop principled, inquiring, knowledgeable and caring leaders who are life-long learners, to create a better and more peaceful world.
