Military schools in Virginia

Virginia is home to more military academies than any other state, part of its association with military training since the 19th century. In fact, Virginia has the most army installations per capita in the United States — most famously West Point, Quantico and Fort Lee.

Military schools in Virginia participate in this tradition and enrich it by perpetuating a curriculum and school environment that combines military discipline with academic. Military schools are unparallelled in their ability to provide discipline and direction to teens. Many teens admit that time in a military boarding school helped them shape their lives and find new directions.

"It's all about self-control. The more positive discipline you exercise on yourself, the less discipline others will force on you. Instead of telling you what to do, they will want to hear what you have to say and follow your example."

—William Hitchcock, Virginia military school instructor.
