Fostering Personal Growth Since 1935

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

The Military College of Pennsylvania™

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 Army ROTC Early Commissioning Program.

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.

This distinction identifies VFMC as a leader in cybersecurity education and makes our graduates equally coveted by transfer schools and businesses. Cybersecurity Certificate graduates will carry the NSA/DHS CAE2Y designation on their transcripts. In their junior and senior years of high school, Academy students can enroll in the College’s Cybersecurity Certificate, and complete it before they graduate, differentiating them from their peers at other private schools.
