Day School

Day School

At Valley Forge, cadets make strides every day. Our Day School program is a chance for parents to witness it every night.


Designed for young men in grades 7-12, the Valley Forge Military Academy Day Program offers non-residential students everything that our residential students get – exceptional academics, dedicated faculty interaction, interscholastic sports, extracurricular activities, and camaraderie as members of the Corps of Cadets. The Day Program is a great way to experience the academic structure and discipline in the classroom, and develop the leadership skills needed to be successful in life – all the things that make Valley Forge Military Academy so special, but without residing on campus.

To the fullest extent possible, the experiences of Day School cadets mirror those of Valley Forge Military Academy’s boarding cadets – with a curriculum that focuses on developing the whole person and stresses Valley Forge’s Five Cornerstones: Academic Excellence, Character Development, Personal Motivation, Physical Development and Leadership.

Valley Forge Day Cadets are assigned to units throughout the Corps. Day students are responsible for keeping the cadet standards that are instilled within the Corps of Cadets. First-year cadets are not eligible for leadership billets, but may be selected for leadership detail in their second year.

As after-school experiences are essential to the cadet experience, our non-residential students are expected and encouraged to participate in the same activities as their boarding counterparts, including interscholastic and intramural sports, clubs, physical training, band, and choir.
