What is FUMA?
Fork Union Military Academy is a college preparatory boarding military school for boys in grades 6-12 and postgraduate located in Fork Union, Virginia, right in the heart of central Virginia. They offer high quality academics and athletics within a structure built around discipline, leadership development, and Christian values. When Dr. Hatcher founded the school in 1898, he wanted to make a school for everyone, one that people could feel accepted in. When the school first began, it was not a military school. That style of schooling was not adopded for about another 5-10 years. The school has a highly effective disciplinary policy, which consists of demerits and tours.
