A Home Away From Home
Day students are assigned a room in our barracks where they may store extra uniforms and supplies. During times of inclement weather when other local schools might close, our day students are still expected to be in attendance, and are permitted to stay overnight in the barracks when travel conditions are unsafe. Day students are welcome to arrive early in time for breakfast in our dining hall, and stay later in the evening to have dinner, engage in club activities, or take part in our CQ study time on campus.
In short, the expectation at Fork Union Military Academy is that day students will be treated as full participants in our Corps of Cadets, except for the fact that they may sleep in their own beds at home at night.
