Academy Overview

Watch our brief introduction to Valley Forge Military Academy.

Forging Boys into Young Men

You know the potential your son has. You have a vision for him, for who you want him to be when he grows up. A man of character, integrity, self-discipline. Confident. Strong. Ready to take on the world.

Developing boys into young men of character is not easy. It requires a holistic approach: mind, body and soul. And, as a parent, it is hard to do it alone. It really does take a village. Most schools don’t offer the kind of structure and discipline that boys need to grow into their full potential.

That is what Valley Forge Military Academy does. We help mold boys into young men who are leaders in their communities, ready to handle the challenges of life.

Take the first step in your son’s future today. Contact us to learn more about how we can help.

Cadets Building their Future Right Now

Your Son Has a Big Future

Written by Kuldip Rao, mother of Cadet Captain Rakshan Rao ’19, Academy Senior Class President/ Band Company Commander

“VFMA has been an incredibly unique journey for my son. From 8th grade to his senior year Rakshan has certainly transformed from a boy to a fine young man! My dream was that he would embrace this amazing life changing opportunity; apply himself academically; face any challenges in a safe contained space thus allowing himself to discover the strength & wisdom within; and upon graduation be prepared with complete confidence to continue his journey. Captain Rao has exceeded my vision!

Valley Forge Military Academy has been a special part of our lives and has become our extended family. I am forever grateful!”

Developing the Whole Person

Since our founding in 1928, we have a long tradition of developing young men of character. Our philosophy is built on Five Cornerstones: Academic Excellence, Character Development, Personal Motivation, Physical Development, and Leadership.

We are able to achieve this rich, transformative character formation through our integrated military and academic community. Within the context of this structured community, cadets forge life-long friendships through shared experience and hold each other accountable to the values and traditions of the Academy. Our faculty serve as mentors as much as teachers, imparting wisdom and guidance alongside a rigorous college preparatory curriculum. All aspects of student life work together to develop our cadets into young men ready to face challenges ahead.
