One of a Kind Experience

Students are immersed in a unique educational experience centered on academic excellence, personal motivation, and character that helps them reach their academic potential to achieve success in the classroom and beyond. From its cadet leadership ranks to the rifle club to its award winning equestrian program, VFMAC teaches students leadership and responsibility in practical ways.

Strong History

Established in 1928, the Academy is an independent, private, college preparatory school for boys in grades 6-12. VFMA has a long tradition of instilling values and building self-confidence to prepare tomorrow’s leaders. VFMA offers college preparatory academics, credentialed faculty, competitive PIAA athletics, and individual attention, providing cadets with an environment focused on their academic success.

Established in 1935, Valley Forge Military College (VFMC) is a co-educational, accredited, private, two-year college. VFMC students are highly focused young women and men opting to hold themselves to a higher standard. They enroll in academic programs that lead to the AA, AS, or ABA degree. The College faculty are extraordinarily dedicated scholar-practitioners, experts in their fields, and focused on teaching as their first priority. Honor societies and academic accolades are but two ways that student achievement is recognized.

Renowned ROTC Program

Additionally, VFMC is one of only five ROTC regiments in the country to offer the US Army’s Early Commissioning Program, providing students interested in becoming an officer in the US Army, the opportunity to earn their commission as a Second Lieutenant upon graduation – thereby earning both their commission and degree during their matriculation at Valley Forge.

A Lot to Offer

Small class sizes, specialized instruction, and dedicated faculty provide an enriching educational experience that imbues students with character traits and the skills to succeed.
