What does cadet life look like?
Cadet life at Fishburne Military School is incredibly exciting for students as members of the Corps of Cadets.

There is always something new to discover and appreciate on our Virginia military school campus. From the renovation of our swimming pool and cadet rooms, to the new Hitt-Millar Field House currently being constructed (slated to open in Fall of 2019), our founder, Professor Fishburne, would be very proud.

Cadet life at Fishburne is certainly unique, even for a boys military school. Our family-oriented barracks and campus community is nestled in a beautiful mountain town, and our perfectly sized student body of about 160 boys ensures that all Fishburne cadets have the best chance to achieve success and get into their colleges of choice.

Religion at FMS
Maintaining Spiritual Health While Pursuing Academic Growth 

Although instruction in religion is not part of the FMS curriculum, Fishburne Military School Cadets are encouraged to practice their faith as part of their “whole man” education. Families who are concerned about access to services for their sons may rest easy. Fishburne’s campus is in the heart of small town America and directly touches five different denominations’ church properties. For students seeking services outside of walking distance, arrangements are made with faculty, staff or church representatives to ensure each young man is able to worship.

Below are links to the Churches closest to FMS Campus. This is, by no means, a complete list of opportunities to worship in the Waynesboro area.
