The National Honor Society was founded in 1921 and is the nation's most prestigious organization honoring students in grades 10 through 12 for their outstanding academic performance, character, and conduct. The National Junior Honor Society was formed in 1929 to likewise recognize students in grades 6 through 9. To be eligible for membership, cadets must be in at least their second year of attendance at the Academy and meet specific criteria for grade point average and demerit counts. Academic and conduct qualifications for membership in the Fork Union Military Academy chapter are even more stringent than the national guidelines and induction into the NHS or NJHS is one of the Academy's top academic honors. 

Fork Union Military Academy is nationally-recognized for its unique One Subject Plan curriculum, followed at the school since 1950. Under the One Subject Plan, instead of students taking four to six classes every day, students take just one subject at a time. The year is divided into five grading periods of about seven weeks each. Each grading period, the student takes one class, such as English or Algebra or Biology. He is with that one teacher all day, every day, for those seven weeks. In a typical school system, a teacher may be responsible for teaching as many as 80 to 150 different students every day in several different classes. At Fork Union Military Academy, a teacher has only one classroom of about ten to seventeen students each day, every day, for seven weeks. Teachers get to know students as individuals, and students get to concentrate fully on each subject. This is believed to be one of the key factors in Fork Union Military Academy achieving a 100% college acceptance rate for seniors, and maintaining a sizable honor roll of students earning academic honors each grading period.
