A Friendship Agreement between Fork Union Military Academy and Academia Militarizada Ignacio Zaragoza (Ignacio Zaragoza Military Academy) of Puebla, Mexico, was established in 2019. 

Both military academies provide high-quality college preparatory educations for young men and share similar missions, traditions, morals, and values. A Memorandum of Friendship was signed by both school presidents stating that both schools will work collaboratively to provide their cadets a broadened global outlook, intercultural perspective, and greater appreciation of the value of diversity.

The goal of both schools is to establish a formal cadet exchange program, and although plans for that program had to be postponed due to COVID, the schools are planning to move ahead with summer exchanges 2022-2023 academic year. Contact Mrs. Montero-Sharpe if you have any questions.
