Young men who have already graduated from high school, but need to improve their SAT, ACT, or other standardized test scores to gain entrance to the college of their choice, have found our postgraduate program extremely helpful. During their year in the Corps of Cadets, postgraduates get far more than the intense focus on improving their academic and testing skills.
The military organization and structured daily life help them learn or improve the qualities of leadership, discipline, and self reliance that may not be available in other schools. The rural location and relative freedom from peer distractions afford the postgraduate student a new perspective from which to assess himself and his future.
Postgraduate cadets are integrated into the Upper School curricula; however, their football and basketball teams compete separately.
Those who pursue athletic goals find themselves in the "best of all possible worlds" here. Fork Union Military Academy offers first class facilities and coaching in all varsity sports. Our coaching staff is well known among all colleges and universities in the eastern United States. Scouts from major universities visit the school and attend our games frequently. They have learned that Fork Union's coaches have "the eye" for talent and a gift for developing it in young athletes.
