Emery L. Fears Boys Academy, Glen Allen, VA Academy Motto: Veritas Et Utilitas Nulli Secundus Emery L. Fears Boys Academy is an independent, Christian, preparatory school for academically accelerated young men in grades four through twelve.
(7)

The Academy is named in honor of renowned educator and bandmaster Emery L. Fears, Professor Emeritus of Music, Director of University Bands (Ret.) Norfolk State University. Fears was instrumental in catapulting the music programs at Norfolk State University to national recognition. Respectfully known as "Chief," Professor Fears is noted for his phenomenal ability to implement musical excellence, ‘esprit de corps’ and self-discipline into the hearts of many students fortunate enough to be under his tutelage. His concert bands at I.C. Norcom and Manor High Schools in Portsmouth, Virginia earned eighteen consecutive Division (Superior) ratings in Virginia Band and Orchestra Directors Association Festivals. Offers to attend the Academy are presented to astute young men who exhibit exceptional academic promise. The Academy has continued its mission as a flagship prep school of successfully educating and producing ambitious young men who are intellectual thinkers, productive citizens, and servants of Christ and mankind.

Mission: Every young man should be taught to believe that he is indeed a genius and a gentleman with the leadership and learning skills of a champion scholar, created in the image of God to become a mighty servant of God.

Yes, I was fortunate enough to retrieve many of the Manor band uniforms, trophies, and other memorabilia one day back in the 1990s before Manor HS was renamed. Custodians were at the school "throwing away" Manor items. My "Most Outstanding" Drum Major trophy from the '79 NSU Band Day now sits in my office. Other Manor Band items are hanging around my school at Emery L. Fears Boys Academy. We worked TOO HARD at Manor High School to be forgotten. Be Blessed! Steve. :)

THE JOY OF TEACHING @ Emery L. Fears Boys Academy...

"Musicians and band members who were under the tutelage of Bandmaster Emery L. Fears can truly appreciate the pleasure of this..."

As I quizzed one of my students this morning in class with "Thinking" questions that had to be answered in seconds, his reply to the following question brought a smile to my face and the type of joy to my heart that only God can provide us with.

His question was: "Name three classical composers." He immediately shouted-out with confidence and assurance in his answer, - "Mozart, Bach, and Emery L. Fears."
