Commuter Student Option

The Valley Forge Military Commuter Student Program offers students exceptional academics, interaction with dedicated faculty, interscholastic sports, extracurricular activities, and camaraderie without residing on campus. This 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 benefits
that make Valley Forge Military College distinctive.

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

As social experiences are essential to the student experience, students are encouraged to participate in the same activities as their peers, including interscholastic and intramural sports, clubs, physical training, band, and choir.

Our campus is conveniently located near 476, 76, and 276. We are also within a short walk of three Septa train stations.

We are a short distance from the SEPTA Paoli/Thorndale Regional Rail Line, a major commuter train line that connects to points throughout the greater Philadelphia area. From Philadelphia (30th Street Station, Suburban Station, or Market East Station), take the Paoli/Thorndale Regional Rail Train Line west towards Paoli (Paoli local) and get off at Radnor.

Both these lines stop at Radnor:
