What I like most about Fishburne is that it feels like a home away from home, even for the faculty and staff members. FMS is a great fit for boys because here they are able to make close friends and “brothers for life”, which is something you usually don’t experience in public schools.
For new students: Starting a new adventure as a new cadet at FMS may feel a little intimidating at first, but stick it out and don’t give up. It is one adventure that will provide you with determination, confidence, and a drive to succeed. You will find that you can rely on your fellow cadets to help push you to succeed.

I’m busy! I love to volunteer in my community and have been a Kiwanis Club member and Key Club Advisor for the past 20 years. You’ll often find me outdoors running or participating in 5K, 10K, and Mud Runs. I am a big Virginia Tech fan and love adventures with my family. And because I hold the title of “Grandma,” I get to spend time with (and spoil!) my grandchildren.
