About Fork Union Military Academy

Fork Union Military Academy is a college preparatory boarding military school for boys in grades 6-12 and postgraduate located in Fork Union, Virginia, right in the heart of central Virginia.

We offer high quality academics and athletics within a structure built around discipline, leadership development, and Christian values.

Military School Tradition

Fork Union Military Academy was founded in 1898 and is a military school steeped in the long tradition of "southern military schools."

Military school cadets enjoy watching a home football game.We use the best aspects of a military-style system to create an environment focused on academic achievement and leadership development. The goal is not to create "soldiers" but to build "solid citizens" who embody the values of integrity, honor, duty, self-discipline, and service to others.

The Academy is not operated by or affiliated with any branch of the military, nor do students become obligated to serve in the military. We are an "independent military school" and do not offer the ROTC or JROTC model. There is no training in military tactics, techniques, or doctrine. We are not a "boot camp" program, nor do we cater to troubled teens in need of a therapeutic school environment.
