17 Parent Reviews for Fork Union Military Academy

We sent our son to school at FUMA and it was a waste of time and money. He was kicked out for smoking and we lost thousands of dollars. The administrators pressured us to "withdraw" so their record would look good but I would not go along. Their unusual single focus curriculum means that children who ...  Read more

I graduated from Fork Union in 2004. I wouldn't have gone to college, graduate school or recieved a good well paying job if I hadn't gone. The parents that are talking about them being money hungry are probably mostly those parents whose kids get kicked out. If you get kicked out you don't get reimbursed ...  Read more

My son is currently attending his first year at FUMA he is in the 8th grade. I found the admission, interview and overall interaction with the staff to be very positive. Its only been a month but my son is doing his homework, his test scores still need some work but I have to say the teachers have been ...  Read more

Fork Union administrators care about one thing...tuition. They are insincere and this is a business only. They hide behind a this military farse, structured discipline, polite charade, and "Christian" values....all of which are one big front to pay their salary. They will say anything to cover up ...  Read more

I have to disagree w/ the parent talking about a perfect record and grades to get into FUMA. My son was barely passing 8th grade and getting into nonsense (trouble w/ the wrong crowd). I knew he was a good kid. After all I am his mom. He wasn't happy to go but with a loving heart I sent him to FUMA. ...  Read more

Everyone who applies to Fork Union Military Academy is not admitted, but everyone is afforded our full consideration for admission. We make every effort to ensure our cadets are mission appropriate, which means they have every chance to succeed in our challenging college-preparatory, Christian, military, ...  Read more

The Admissions department of this school is terribly rude and condescending. They are money hungry and are elitist. Do not even bother visiting this school unless your son has a perfect record and good grades in his current school. But if that's the case, why would you want to spend a small fortune ...  Read more

We sent our son to Fork Union Military Academy for his eighth grade year and I cannot say enough great things about the caring staff and the positive changes in our son. He wanted to go back to FUMA for his entire high school years, but with the economic downturn we had to send him back to public school. ...  Read more

My son attended FUMA then was dismissed over a simple issue on the second week of his senior year. He was wrongly accused & they had not a shread of evidence. They have very little supervision in place. This school is motivated by money alone and they hide behind their so called "Christian Values". ...  Read more

I have no doubt that some of the 'good' reviews on here are written by Fork Union Secretaries. Who ever you're do your research before deciding to put your child in this school and my ONLY advice to you would be to find another school. Why? As you will see when you visit the school the front desk ...  Read more
