Tuition and Fees

Generally speaking, our costs for tuition and room & board are at the low end of what you might expect for a private boarding school. Our tuition is comparable to many day schools, and our room & board and uniform costs are comparable to what it would cost you to house and clothe your son in your own home.
We encourage you to call our Director of Admissions, COL Tripp Billingsley, at 434.842.4205. He can explain the tuition levels for boarding students, day students, students entering during the academic year, as well as the various payment options that are available. He can also explain our Tuition Assistance Program, designed to make a Fork Union Military Academy education affordable for as wide a range of family situations as we possibly can.
