Fork Union Military Academy's student body is organized as a Cadet Corps led by cadet officers who serve as members of the battalion staff, as company commanders, platoon leaders, and in other leadership roles. A cadet who shows responsibility, consistent good conduct, and leadership potential can earn rank—first within his company, and perhaps later at the battalion level. Cadet officers lead their platoons and companies under the direct adult supervision of the Commandant and the members of his staff, known as Tactical Officers. These cadet officers learn valuable lessons about responsibility, the use of authority, discrection, and leading by example. In other schools, young people might gain status based on their popularity, athletic ability, or the clique they hang out with. At Fork Union Military Academy, rank is earned based on true merit and achievement. Fork Union Military Academy offers unique opportunities for young men to develop valuable leadership skills that will be used throughout their lives.
