To obtain this distinguished honor, the Fort Benning community demonstrated that it is truly one of partnership throughout. The Fort Benning Schools are a very integral part of this partnership. Building futures in a supportive community of learners, we offer a quality education to dependents of military members from prekindergarten through eighth grade. High school students attend local county high schools.  

Sponsors of students transferring to Fort Benning Schools are required to provide verification of active duty status, and proof of on-post residency before a child may be registered.  Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, and Kindergarten require a certified birth certificate before registration can be accepted. Read more about Eligibility, Age Requirements, and Registration
