Smaller Classes, Bigger Success

The One Subject Plan

There is one feature unique to Fork Union Military Academy that sets us apart from other schools. We have established an intensive-style approach to our curriculum. The One Subject Plan—where cadets take just one core course at a time—has revolutionized our ability to empower students to achieve their highest levels of personal academic achievement.

Traditional Classroom vs. FUMA classroom

Our unique One Subject Plan curriculum has proven successful for many decades. This comprehensive curriculum is designed to help students immerse themselves in the lesson and help teachers work closely with their students. Through the program, student concentration goes up, learning goes up, and grades go up. This is why you can count on our college acceptance rate hitting 100% every year.

Our teachers have only one classroom of students (usually about 10 to 17 students) each day, every day, for seven weeks. This enables the teacher to get to know each student as an individual and allows students to fully concentrate on each subject. There are no more nights of deciding "should I do my math homework or my writing assignment first?”. Concentration and learning go up, and as a result, grades go up and students are able to succeed.

Benefits of the One Subject Plan

Reduces conflicting academic demands

With the One Subject Plan, cadets are accountable to one teacher – a teacher who makes sure that they always put forth an effort and make consistent progress.

Subject Immersion

Students take only one course at a time, focusing all their attention on that one area for seven weeks, before moving on to the next course.

Teachers have more freedom

Teachers have greater freedom to work with their students during the course of each day, rather than having to cover material in competition with other academic interests.

Students learn how to focus

Students acquire study skills such as prolonged focus, self-discipline, and time management which sets the stage to better adapt to college curriculum.
