Valley Forge Military Academy & College News  

A Letter from the President

Dear Forge Family,

Educating and parenting are similar concepts: with both, the days can be long and the years can fly by. So it is with this school year – it has seemingly flown. We are within sight of graduation for both the Academy and the College. This edition of the Forge reports on accomplishments and activities around the campus.

At the College, our Citizen Leader program is highlighted and the ROTC program has been busy and visible. At the Academy, sports, including e-sports, as well as the arts with theater and band performances, and a college cadet talent show complementing the rigors of academics.

Please have a look at the article of gratitude from the Development office. Before we know it, summer will provide a different challenge for VFMAC leadership. As our Cadets leave campus, we will miss them as we begin immediate preparation for the 95th Corps of Cadets. For parents and those in education, the day of their return won’t come soon enough!

Thank you for your ongoing engagement and support of VFMAC – we are here for our Cadets and could not do it without your support.

Sincerely,

Col. Stuart B. Helgeson, USMCR Retired,

President, Valley Forge Military Academy & College
