(A student must have completed grade 7 to be considered for summer session)
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 6-12 (student must have completed grade 6) earn academic credit for new course work, correct deficiencies through repeat work, and improve study habits.
The four-week program typically begins in early July. Classes, taught by the Academy's regular faculty, are held six days a week.
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 provides all students supervised access to computers and the internet. A nurse is on duty daily in the school infirmary to insure adequate health care. Outstanding athletic facilities, including indoor track, weight room, and aquatic center provides lots of active space for physical development.
Though the summer school program is non-military, uniforms, issued by the school, are required for class, athletics and trips.
