FMS to showcase education mission

Small class sizes, loads more one-on-one instruction, discipline to set a course for a lifetime. That’s what Fishburne Military School offers, and what the Waynesboro-based private school will be showcasing in a series of upcoming open houses.

Fishburne will be hosting Open House events on Saturdays beginning this weekend and running through Aug. 20. Parents and prospective students are invited to tour the campus and talk with teachers and administrators to get a feel for what FMS has to offer the young men in its charge.

“There’s something about visiting and touring the campus that really makes you feel what we can do here at Fishburne,” said Ryan Catherwood, the director of communications at Fishburne Military School. “Parents and visiting students really develop a bond with the school walking the grounds here.”

Founded in 1879, Fishburne is an all-male, college preparatory, private day and boarding school focused on preparing boys in grades 7-12 and post-graduate with a whole-man education which includes the academic knowledge and skills to succeed in college, along with the character and leadership values to succeed at life.
