Leadership for Life: The Fishburne Legacy

Character. Honor. Industry. These aren't qualities you have one day then discard the next. These are the qualities that every young man who comes to Fishburne Military School carries forward for the rest of his life . . . because we revere, elevate and model those things for our students every single day.

It's how you can spot a Fishburne Man - by his desire to maintain the highest standards of integrity and citizenship. And no matter how much the world changes, those qualities will always be admired - and followed. That's why we can honestly say that our graduates emerge from Fishburne Military School forever shaped by the concept of Leadership for Life.
