Making the Very Most of Summer at Fishburne Military School

June 22- July 27, 2019

Admissions Summer Flyer

Fishburne Military School has designed a five-week Summer Session especially for students who:

  • need required course remediation
  • want to improve study skills
  • wish to prepare for SATs
  • must earn additional credits for graduation
  • would benefit from JROTC leadership training and confidence building
  • seek a structured and caring academic environment
  • enjoy daily extra-curricular athletics and activities

Core Academic Courses Offered

English (Grades 7-11), Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry, Pre-algebra, Algebra 1&2, Geometry, Leadership Education Training (JROTC) 1&2, World History, U.S. History, and World Languages 1&2.

Each of these courses may be offered as a half-day course (70 hours) or as a full-day course (140 hours). Course enrollment at Summer Session is limited to TWO half-day courses -OR- ONE full-day course. Half-day courses are reserved for repeat classes or elective courses. Students taking an Academic Course for the FIRST TIME must take as a full-day course in order to receive credit.

FMS reserves the right to cancel any class or activity with fewer than five cadets enrolled during Summer School.

Elective Courses

Fishburne Military School’s Summer Curriculum includes Elective Courses which, although not considered graduation requirements, are approached as important pieces of the whole-student education at FMS. Coding, SAT Prep, Study Skills, and Outdoor Adventure are taught to help students expand their educational profile and strengthen their academic confidence and skills across various curricula.

Leadership Education and Training

In addition, Fishburne is offering JROTC Leadership Education & Training (LET) 1 & 2 during Summer School. The JROTC instruction and training is focused upon developing each student’s ability to achieve leadership, character, and academic success. Taking JROTC may help cadets increase their potential to receive ROTC scholarships and to be selected for admission to one of the United States Service Academies (only Cadets enrolled in JROTC during the regular school year are eligible for academy nominations). Normally cadet officers must be enrolled in LET3 during their senior year. Thus, if your son started at FMS as a junior it is recommended that he take LET2 during the next summer.

Sports and Extra-curriculars

During Summer School, Fishburne Summer Cadets may opt to take PE, which offers them a rotating menu of different athletic experiences. Those who wish to concentrate upon a favorite sport instead, may opt to participate in daily afternoon sports time for soccer, basketball, golf, football/strength conditioning, swimming, running, tennis, and wrestling. On Wednesday afternoons, cadets participate in an adventure or confidence building activity such as rappelling, orienteering, or building a one-rope bridge. On Friday afternoons Summer School cadets are allotted time for additional extracurricular activities of their choice until 5:30 p.m.

Flight Training

During Athletic period and on alternating Saturdays, Fishburne will once again offer a Summer School Aviation program as a cooperative venture between Fishburne and Eagles Nest Regional Airport. The program offering is contingent on the availability of flight school instructors and having at least five students sign up. The program allows cadets the opportunity to learn more about aviation through both classroom and hands-on experience. The cost of the program is $325.00.

The English Language Skills Camp is a two-week summer session for foreign nationals who can gain some exposure to life as a Fishburne cadet. The camp includes a head-start on the ESL online courses during the morning academic period and the Outdoor Adventures class during the afternoon. Participants may choose their afternoon activity from PE, Basketball, Football/Strength & Conditioning, Running and Swimming, Soccer, Tennis, or Wrestling.
