Forest Hill Military Academy is located in Millersburg, Bourbon County, Kentucky. It is the newest military school in the US having opened its doors in 2012. However, its location is not new to the military schools tradition because it was home to the Millersburg Military Institute which closed back in 2007 after running for more than 113 years. This military academy, which takes in students in grades 6 to 12, currently offers day and boarding sessions for the students. It operates as a coed military school.
Forest Hill Military Academy has sent an application to the National Private Schools Accreditation Group, Inc for accreditation. In June 2013, the school received a letter indicating an anticipated approval. Part of the training includes mountain climbing, scuba diving and water survival. The training follows the footsteps of the United States Army.

Technology is highly stressed in this military academy. Every student is required to have a laptop computer. This helps prepare the cadets for the modern military and civilian world. The curriculum meets the requirements for the Kentucky state. The academic programs are also tailored to meet the needs of the gifted and less gifted students.
