Providing Structure and Discipline: A Model For Learning And For Life

A challenging curriculum, a dedicated faculty, small classes, 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 time management, professionalism, and life skills that will propel them ahead of their peers.
