Fork Union Military Academy's Summer School provides a non-military program of academic study, athletic activities, and planned enrichment trips. The session is designed to help students in grades 7-12 earn academic credit to improve their grades and transcript record through repeat work, improve study habits, increase comprehensive knowledge base for college preparation, and.have the opportunity to take interesting and enriching elective courses in a fun summer setting.
The four-week program typically begins in early July. Classes, taught by the Academy's regular faculty, are held six days a week. Students must have completed grade 7 to be considered for admission.
Located 50 miles west of Richmond, Virginia and 35 miles southwest of Charlottesville, Virginia, the Academy's 1,000-acre campus provides playing fields, tennis courts, and a state-of-the-art athletic center.
Air-conditioned dorms, classrooms, dining facility, and a 21,500+ volume library create a comfortable atmosphere for learning. FUMA's technology center, computer labs, and wireless access points provide all students supervised access to computers and the internet. A nurse is on duty daily in the school infirmary to insure adequate health care.
