Fork Union Military Academy was founded in 1898 by Dr. William Hatcher, a prominent Baptist minister. Christian values serve as the foundation of Fork Union Military Academy.
Cadets are expected to conduct themselves with kindness and respect. This expectation is reinforced and clarified in chapel services and student assemblies held during the week and Sunday mornings.
All cadets attend our Christian chapel services Monday through Thursday each week in addition to our Sunday service. Our goal is to provide young men with a faith framework within which they may apply themselves toward achieving their academic potential while growing as men of character and integrity.
The Academy is proud of our affiliation with the Baptist General Association of Virginia, however, the Corps reflects the broad diversity of religious belief found in our world.
