One Subject Plan
Fork Union Military Academy follows a unique curriculum schedule in our Upper School (grades 9-12 and postgraduate). It is called the One Subject Plan.
Instead of juggling 4 to 6 classes every day, or following a "block schedule," our students take one subject at a time.
The year is divided into five grading periods of about 7 weeks each. Each grading period, the student takes one class. He is with that one teacher all day, every day, for about 7 weeks.
Talk about individual attention!
In a typical public school, a teacher is responsible for teaching 80 to 150 different students every day in several different classes.
At Fork Union Military Academy, a teacher has only one classroom of students (usually about 10 to 17 students) each day, every day, for seven weeks.
This enables the teacher to get to know each student as an individual, and enables each student to concentrate fully on each subject. There are no more nights of deciding "should I do my math homework or my writing assignment first?" or jumping the mind back and forth between geometry and grammar.
Concentration goes up, learning goes up, and grades go up.
