Father-Son Weekend

The Father-Son Weekend at Fork Union Military Academy, one of the nation's leading college preparatory boarding schools for boys in grades 7 through postgraduate, is a weekend to spend with your son, relax and have fun!

Fork Union is located in the rolling hills of central Virginia's piedmont region, an easy drive from Washington D.C., Charlottesville and Richmond. Our goal is to provide fun, sports and active weekend for fathers and sons as they experience our 120-year old Academy that instills the values of respect, integrity, faith, character and discipline in their students and has produced doctors, lawyers, teachers, military leaders, business leaders, Heisman Trophy winners, Olympians, and Super Bowl and NCAA Champions.
