About VFMC

Home > The College > About VFMC

A private, co-educational, residential college that offers the freshman and sophomore years of college.

VFMC has a long tradition of fostering personal growth through a unique, comprehensive system built on Five Cornerstones: Academic Excellence, Character Development, Personal Motivation, Physical Development, and Leadership.

Whether your ambitions are rooted in our rich military traditions or shaped by your scholarly endeavors, we invite you to explore all that we have to offer. We offer three paths toward earning your degree: as a member of the Corps of Cadets, as a Commuter Student, or through the Early Commissioning Program via ROTC.

The diverse student body represents more than 31 states and 27 countries. VFMC has an excellent transfer record: 95 percent of cadets are accepted to their first or second choice schools. More than 63 percent were admitted to the top-tier schools in the country.

Although we are a military school, the end result is not necessarily to pursue a career in the military – though nearly 40% of our graduates will choose this path. The VFMC “military model” is, at its core, a structured way to teach students life skills that will propel them ahead of their peers.

Our Mission

The mission of Valley Forge Military College is to educate students within an academic and military environment to transfer to academically competitive four-year colleges, universities, or service academies.
