* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': There's the optional military training organization of the Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (JROTC) at the Whateley Academy.
--> '''WordOfGod''': It's not dedicated US Military, or even a branch. Students can sign up for credit with all of the US service branches and international students can apply their studies back to their home militaries. The JROTC corps on campus is a panoply of uniforms, Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, British, French, Etc. In fact, the only 'uniform' item is the Beret the students wear which, as the fiction of the unit is a 'multinational organization' has dispensation from both the U.N. and NATO to issue sky blue UN collation force colors.

* The titular Battle School of Oscar Mike's DLC Story Operation from ''VideoGame/{{Battleborn}}'' is the training boot camp that all Mike clones must go through upon "birth". Consisting of a series of arena style battles, the Battle School must be completed before Mikes can be deployed into battle proper. In order to rejoin Mike society, Oscar Mike's trial is to go through the Battle School again. Due to General Mike exercising his Clonestitutional right to bureaucratically make things more difficult than necessary, Oscar Mike has to go through the Battle School 10 times.

In fiction, a rebellious teen may be threatened with one, making it a variation on the BoardingSchoolOfHorrors theme. It is also a common basis for a BootCampEpisode or OffToBoardingSchool.

OffToBoardingSchool. Compare MilitaryAcademy, which is for older students who tend to take it more seriously.

* In ''DeadPoetsSociety'', this is what Neil, one of the members of the title group of youths, is threatened with by his FantasyForbiddingFather when he learns that he is playing Puck in their production of ''AMidsummerNightsDream'' instead of focusing his energies on being the doctor he wants him to be. [[spoiler:The prospect of being sent someplace he does not want to go and being given no real choice in life breaks poor Neil, and he is DrivenToSuicide]].

* A place like this was used as a setting in a ComicBooks/{{Spider Man}} story where he was helping ComicBooks/ThePunisher uncover a GovernmentConspiracy involving a huge stash of marijuana. Turned out it was being stored there. ("Makes sense," claimed Frank. "The government has control, nobody would question the presence of munitions or "supplies" and most importantly, who'd ever suspect school children of guarding the world's largest stash?" (Fortunately, they managed to solve the problem without and kids getting hurt, but this was one case where ''Spidey'' got so angry at the guy in charge that ''Frank'' had to hold him back.)

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987'', a kid was sent to one of these schools after CryingWolf about {{Alien Invasion}}s too many times; it looked legit until he found out it was under the control of two bona-fide aliens, Wingnut and Screwloose.
