    135+

    Smaller classes allow cadets to have the opportunity to actually do the work rather than just learn about it.

    More feedback from instructors results in a better, more effective learning experience.

    There is more incentive to pay attention and become involved in a small class, because it is obvious when they don’t.

Opportunities and Assistance Programs for International Students

Classes that prepare cadets for university admission

We help each cadet (and their family) gain a clear understanding of his abilities and interests. Equipped with information on educational opportunities and this self-knowledge, we assist each cadet in finding those schools that make strong matches for his talents. Careful attention is paid to making wise decisions and meeting deadlines.

English language immersion

Fishburne offers English language immersion both in and outside the classroom which will satisfy TOEFL/IELTS university requirements.

TOEFL
Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), a test that evaluates the ability of an individual to use and understand English in an academic setting.

IELTS
The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is designed to help you work, study or migrate to a country where English is the native language. This includes countries such as Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK and USA. Your ability to listen, read, write and speak in English will be assessed during the test.

Sports opportunities for all cadets

Our young men have 13 sports from which to choose… and while winning is important, we’re just as focused on emphasizing confidence, pride, playing smart, working together and, of course, having some fun out there.

All in on whatever future fits your son

Fishburne does an amazing job of preparing our cadets for college. (That’s why we have a 100% college acceptance rate.) But not every cadet wants to be college bound—so we’re ready to get your son wherever he sees himself thriving. If it’s Military Academy, our JROTC program is the best way to get a leg up. If it’s trade school, we know the best path to get there too. Like we say, we see what’s great in your son, then we help the world see it too.
