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 provide assistance to cadets in grades 7th through postgraduate who desire supplemental academic support beyond the classroom. Cadets enrolled in the program receive 45 minutes of instruction 4 days per week, typically in classes of 6 to 8 cadets.

Teachers from The Resource Program collaborate regularly with core teachers in developing an individual learning plan based on cadet needs and learning styles.

Cadets with previously diagnosed and relatively mild learning differences may benefit from inclusion in the Resource Program, as will any cadet who has previously received an IEP or 504 Plan. However, a cadet does not need an active or previously active IEP or 504 to enroll in the program. 

If at any point during an academic term, a cadet achieves a grade of B+ or higher, daily participation in the Resource class becomes optional. There is an annual cost for enrollment in the Resource Program.

If you are interested in having your son enrolled, please review the Resource Enrollment Form. For more information about the program or for help enrolling, please contact our Resource Instructor, 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.
