Fishburne Military School, Waynesboro:
Located in Waynesboro, an independent city located within the confines of Augusta County, Virginia, Fishburne Military School is a military boarding school for boys in grades 7-12. For 130 years, Fishburne Military School has aided young men to reach their full potential as scholars, athletes and individuals. Here, students develop lifelong skills in leadership and self-discipline. By virtue of our distinguished Leadership Training Program (FLTP) as part of recognized JROTC Cadet Program, FMS nominates qualified seniors to U.S. Military Service Academies.
We are accredited by the Virginia Association of Independent Schools and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
The Fishburne Military School mission provides each cadet with a healthy physical and mental environment, a sound academic foundation united with ROTC leadership training— and secures an understanding about the obligations of honor, citizenship and self-discipline.
Since 1879 this guiding principle has been the foundation for all aspects of life at Fishburne. From the time Professor Fishburne founded the school until today, the faculty, staff and administration have worked to maintain the high ideals necessary to provide our Corps of Cadets with quality instruction and to foster the atmosphere that provides Leadership for Life.
From the moment a Fishburne Cadet matriculates until the time he strides proudly across the graduation stage, the FMS Mission permeates every aspect of his experience. Academic achievement, athletic participation, attention to detail, time-management development, personal accomplishment and pride ... these are the direct benefits of the Fishburne Mission.
