Fork Union Military Academy Reviews
We took advantage of their academic success program. There he found continuous support and cheers! They found novel approaches to reach him, took the time to learn about him, and flexed their approaches. I have been concerned in the past about the ability of teachers who are not Black to 'see my son' as an individual. At FUMA, they know him, challenge him to be his best, hold him accountable, and motivate him.
I am proud of what he has done this year. As a testament to the place, he is looking forward to going back in the Fall - he's proud that he's earned a promotion in rank and knows he can do even better academically. Amazing.
Our son has attained his best grades and has for the first time been really enthusiastic about his studies. He also has thrived in the environment they create there for a living. He has become more active in sports than any other time in his life.
And this past year their handling of education and the pandemic was superb. They placed a very high priority on in-person education and adjusted the environment in such a positive way to make that happen. I feel that my son made strides this year he never would’ve made in virtual education. In the process, he also witnessed firsthand that if you take control of a challenging situation you can succeed.
