July 1, 2018.

The Academy is seeking a proven leader with a strong

About Fork Union Military Academy

Fork Union Military Academy is the largest all-male,
college-prep, Christian, military boarding (and day) school in the country, and
offers an exemplary private education to over 400 cadets in grades 7 through
12, as well as postgraduate study.

Founded in 1898, the Academy recognizes the importance of
educating the entire young man—body, mind, and spirit. The Academy is situated
on a beautiful 1,200-acre campus in Fork Union, Virginia. The Academy attracts
a diverse Corps of Cadets from over 30 states and 19 countries.

Fork Union Military Academy has long been recognized as a
leader and innovator among independent educational institutions. Since 1950,
the Upper School has been using the One Subject Plan, which continues to
revolutionize the high school academic program. In addition, the Academy boasts
an Early College Scholars program, which enables select young men to complete
an associate's degree during their junior and senior years at the Academy. The
Middle School, while sharing a wing in the dormitory, is designed to meet the
specific needs of 7th and 8th graders. The Academy also
serves the needs of academic and athletic postgraduates.
