529 Plans & Veterans Administration Education Benefits

Coverdell Education Savings Accounts and 529 plans are investment programs that allow you to save money for future education expenses for your child or other designated beneficiary. While these programs were originally intended for higher education purposes, such as college costs, a change in the law in 2017 means that some of these invested funds (up to $10,000) may be available to use for private K-12 tuition. Rules for these savings programs may vary from state to state, so you will want to check with your financial advisor to determine whether you may be able to use these funds to help pay tuition at Fork Union.

US veterans who have not fully utilized their GI Bill amounts may be eligible to use those amounts for our tuition. Our business office staff may be able to help provide you with more information based on your individual circumstances.

Financial Aid and Scholarships

Financial assistance is available for students who will be an asset to our Corps of Cadets and whose families may need help affording a private school education.  In fact, more than half of our enrolled students receive some amount of need-based financial aid each year.

Tuition Protection Plan (TPP)

Fork Union Military Academy offers a Tuition Protection Plan. The Tuition Protection Plan offers the only means by which any tuition adjustment or refund can be made for students who leave school before the end of the academic year. This is a service provided for a fee, it is not an insurance product, and your participation in this plan is not mandatory.
