Academic Services

In addition to the support students receive from our faculty, we provide an experienced team of academic support personnel to help our students maximize their potential.
For students with learning differences or others who could benefit from additional academic support, the Academy offers an additional layer of academic assistance through its resource program. Students enrolled in this program are taught learning strategies that benefit them in their core courses.

All students benefit from the services of the Department of College Placement and Academic Services. Our counselors provide guidance and support by assisting students in course selection and monitoring their current progress.

Resource Program

Fork Union Military Academy offers a Resource Program designed to assist cadets in grades 8 through 12 with additional academic support. Those enrolled in the program will meet in the designated Resource classroom during the 45-minute planning period Monday through Thursday. This time will include remedial instruction of course content, learning strategies—including (but not limited to) note-taking, studying, and test-taking strategies—amongst other skills needed to be successful (i.e., time management, self-accountability, and prioritizing).

For cadets to receive individualized instruction, content teachers are communicated with weekly to further identify any weaknesses or needs. Students do earn a grade based on work ethic, positive attitude, and attendance. Students must participate and be receptive to working towards academic proficiency.

The Resource seminar does not conflict with the academic term course. This course is in addition to any seminar or term course offerings.

If you are interested in having your son enrolled, please review the Resource Program Enrollment Form (see the link below).

For more information about the program or for help enrolling, please contact our Director of College Placement and Academic Services, Mrs. Kelsey Hill, via email at HillK@fuma.org.

Driver Education Program

Department of College Placement and Academic Services oversees Fork Union Military Academy's Online Driver Education Program. The classroom portion of the program is conducted through online education, and the "behind the wheel" portion of the program is available through the Fork Union Driving Academy, an outside service provider located here in Fork Union. 

Both the online classroom program and the behind-the-wheel program are contracted for separately by families and each carries an additional fee that must be paid to the service provider. Our College Placement Department is only involved in facilitating this program and seeing that eligible cadets are given the opportunity to participate. Cadets do earn 1/2 credit of elective credit upon completion of the Drivers Education Program.

Please call (434) 842-4203 if you have any additional questions involving Fork Union Military Academy's Driver Education Program.
