About The Fishburne Program

Fishburne Military School is dedicated to developing the entire student-athlete. Fishburne boarding school for boys welcomes all cadets to participate in competitive athletics at the varsity and junior varsity level. Regardless of how cadets get involved or in which program, they’ll find athletics are a great way to channel physical energy, stay fit and learn valuable qualities associated with participation. We emphasize teamwork, self-discipline and good sportsmanship. “Winning the right way” is our department’s motto.

Creating the Well-Rounded Student

As a private boarding school for boys, Fishburne Military School varsity and junior varsity teams compete against other regional and independent schools in a variety of sports, such as baseball, basketball, football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, swimming, track and field, and wrestling.

Our underlying goal is to emphasize hard work, teamwork and team pride, playing smart and working together to ensure the team reaches its potential. If we work toward realizing these goals, then the wins and losses will take care of themselves. Respect, as opposed to winning at all costs, is the emphasis of Fishburne’s sports programs. The only way to earn respect is by playing hard and by playing with good sportsmanship, win or lose.

The Athletic Department’s position is that all of our team members are students first and foremost. Academics are the educational foundation for future endeavors. Academic studies provide exercise and discipline for the brain, while athletics provide exercise and discipline for the rest of the body.

Athletic contests are a key component of a well-rounded education. They foster self-discipline, patriotism, teamwork and respect for tradition. In addition to physical fitness, they offer a terrific opportunity for learning core values of sacrifice, hard effort and working toward the greater good of the team.

The primary objective of Fishburne Military School is to provide a structured environment and centering to allow each cadet to succeed to his maximum potential, and to develop each cadet into a responsible and ethical citizen who will excel as a concerned leader in society.
