FMS approaches the teaching of Learning Skills as an integral part of the Academic Program. We have found that students learn and apply “learning techniques and strategies” more readily if he sees an immediate and useful application for these skills. To accomplish this objective, Learning Skills are taught within the context of regular classes.
Fishburne Military School is the oldest and smallest of the military schools in Virginia for boys. Its college-prep curriculum is built upon the structure of an Army JROTC program. FMS is designated as a JROTC Honor Unit with Distinction and may nominate qualified candidates to the United States Service Academies. Fishburne hosts one of only four Summer JROTC programs in the nation, accredited by US Army Cadet Command.
