Enrolling in a military-style school is a big change. One day you’re at home in your comfy room surrounded by the things you love, and the next day you’re in your new room with a roommate you just met, surrounded by little more than the bare necessities. It’s all proof that changing yourself starts with changing your environment.
Before you know it, though, Fishburne will feel like home. But don’t be surprised if you have a period of homesickness (most boys do.) After all, life is gonna be more rigorous and more controlled—but also more rewarding. And, just so you know, it might be a big adjustment for your parents too.
If you’re a parent, we’re more than happy to help. Here’s a faculty and staff directory with phone numbers and e-mail addresses; please feel free to contact anyone with questions and/or concerns.
