Recent educational studies show that students lose about 30% of what they learn during a school year in the summer months.  The Fishburne Military School Summer Program may be just what your son needs to stop the summer slide!

The FMS Summer Program Academics is meant to be a review of things learned during the regular school year and a smattering of new information and skills. We are not offering for-credit classes this summer, but rather educational opportunities to keep your son academically engaged so he does not fall behind in his studies.

In addition to our summer review of English language arts, math, science, and history. If your son needs credit recovery, we are offering opportunities for those courses to be completed through an online program that will be incorporated into our daily schedule.

Cadets choose 3 academic core, one-hour classes will be four times per week: Monday-Thursday.  Cadets will select 2 elective classes that will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays every week.

No honors level/advanced/AP/Dual Enrollment courses are offered over the summer. Cadets select 2 courses for summer session.

Students will experience military adventure and leadership training with JROTC Friday activities! Students will build confidence and interpersonal and leadership skills while being challenged with exciting activities and new skill development. Each Friday, cadets will experience a different aspect of military-style character development and leadership training, including a visit to the Virginia Military Institute, high ropes courses, leader reaction teamwork courses, rock climbing walls, rappelling, obstacle courses, and compass orienteering courses. In addition, students will build teamwork and camaraderie while competing in a best squad field day competition and enjoy fun and challenging water and other adventure activities. This training will be led by Fishburne Military School’s Army JROTC instructors, with decades of military leadership and training experience.

Fishburne Military School has earned the US Army’s highest level of accreditation and maintained its designation as a JROTC Honor Unit With Distinction for over 40 years.


Summer students are trained to descend in a controlled manner from a height, such as a cliff or wall, sliding down down an anchored rope while appling friction to control their speed.





Outdoor Adventures

Fishburne is located in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains so we take advantage of every opportunity to experience the great outdoors. Every Tuesday and Thursday, all of our students will participate in our Outdoor Adventure program. They will go bass fishing in a farm pond, swim in Sherando Lake, tubing on the James River, mountain biking at Massanutten, horseback riding and hiking.


Weekends at Fishburne are a blast! We’re talking waterslides, slip-n-slide kickball, a field day with multiple games to compete in, tasting outings including visits to Klines Ice Cream and Benny’s Pizza in downtown Waynesboro.
