A College Preparatory School with a Military Tradition™
Valley Forge Military Academy (VFMA) is a private, all-male boarding school offering grades 7 through 12 and postgraduate. Established in 1928, VFMA has a long tradition of fostering personal growth through a comprehensive system built on Five Cornerstones: Academic Excellence, Character Development, Personal Motivation, Physical Development, and Leadership.
Structure and Discipline: A Model For Learning And For Life
A challenging curriculum, a dedicated faculty, small classes averaging 13 students, and faculty-supervised evening study halls combine to provide cadets with an environment conducive to academic success. Although we are a military school, the end result is not necessarily to pursue a career in the military– though nearly 10% of our graduates will choose this path. The VFMA “military model” is, at its core, a structured way to teach students life skills that will propel them ahead of their peers.
College-level Classes Available: Fast Track To A Degree
Also unique to the VFMA educational experience is the opportunity for our academically qualified high school juniors and seniors to enroll in college-level classes at the College. Many of our Academy graduates eventually enroll in the College full-time because of the special Senior ROTC Early Commissioning Program, where in just two years they will be commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the Army. This track is faster than their peers’ in other four-year programs. Our College is one of only five schools in the country to offer this accelerated program, and the only school in the Northeast.
