Valley Forge Military Academy & College (usually shortened as VFMA&C) is an American preparatory boarding school (grades 7-12) and coeducational (as of Fall 2006) junior college in the military school tradition located in Wayne, Pennsylvania. Though military in tradition and form, Valley Forge Military Academy (the high school portion of VFMA&C) is a college preparatory boarding institution specializing on student leadership. VFMA&C’s administration is composed almost entirely of current or retired military and the Board of Trustees are almost entirely alumni. Some graduates pursue careers in armed services, and VFMA&C has oneRhodes Scholar. VFMA&C and the Duke of York’s Royal Military School, United Kingdom have become sister[clarification needed] institutions. VFMAC has strong ties with various Royal Families and organizations.

The Valley Forge Corps of Cadets is the only American military organization that maintains British drill and ceremonies. The entire student body (Academy and College) pledge to an honor code and is obligated to cadet duties and responsibilities. The Corps of Cadets is entirely student run. All cadets must pass a board and earn a “Capshield” to be a member of the Corps of Cadets. Valley Forge Military Academy and College is unique among American secondary and higher education to have the only, student run and the only physically demanding, six week military indoctrination, held twice a year, called “Plebe System.” It is also the only Corps of Cadets in the United States to still have a traditional mounted battalion of one cavalry troop and one artillery battery. The VFMAC Alumni Association has one of the largest and busiest alumni participation in the nation.

Valley Forge Military College, “The Military College of Pennsylvania,” is unique as it is the only private junior military college in the United States where the entire college student body is military cadets from the US and international cadets. All students are members of the Corps of Cadets. The Academy & College was fully residential, but in recent years the academy also offers a day student program. VFMC is the only military college that caters to all branches of the US military through the ROTC and the “Prepster” program for all 5 US Federal Service Academies.[citation needed]

Mission & Military Model

Mission

To educate cadets within an academic and military environment to be fully prepared for their responsibilities as citizen leaders who are mentally alert, sound in body, considerate of others and possessed of the highest sense of duty, honor, loyalty and courage.

To foster the love of God and country, high moral standards and strong character traits that will make all cadets a credit to themselves, their families, their alma mater, their country, and their God.

Military Model

Providing Structure and Discipline: A Model For Learning And For Life

A challenging curriculum, a dedicated faculty, small classes, and faculty-supervised evening study halls combine to provide cadets with an environment conducive to academic success. Although we are a military school, the end result is not necessarily to pursue a career in the military– though nearly 10% of our graduates will choose this path.

The VFMA “military model” is, at its core, a structured way to teach students time management, professionalism, and life skills that will propel them ahead of their peers.

Our Five Cornerstones

Building Leaders by Developing the Whole Person

Both an academic and military environment, VFMA&C builds leaders by developing the whole person.

Our international reputation is based on a foundation that is summarized by Five Cornerstones:

 

 

International Academy Students

Currently our cadets come from over 25 foreign countries.

International students at Valley Forge Military Academy have an abundance of resources available to them.

Our Success Stories

Some of our accolades

One of the most important decisions that a young person can make is to decide on a school that best fits the needs that will shape their future. Our son did just that, he dreamed big and pursued being accepted as a cadet at Valley Forge Military Academy. His dream came true. He has succeeded tremendously. As a new cadet coming into the Academy for his freshman year of school, he has truly thrived in a highly academically challenging, disciplinary environment. He reported to school in early August as young kid and has now turned into a tremendous leader both academically and spiritually. He loves the environment and the camaraderie that he has with his brothers at the Academy. During the Plebe period, he grew to respect, appreciate and count on his brothers to help him through anything that he may encounter. A deep bound between these wonderful, young intelligent men will never be broken.

Being part of soccer, swimming and lacrosse has shaped him into a well-rounded individual. His gold star performance in academics has given him the confidence to know that he can succeed at anything. He has been fortunate to be exposed to many different students from different countries and backgrounds. This has made him diverse and accepting of all individuals and tolerant of people from different cultures. My son’s story is a real story of someone who was so passionate about what he wanted that he researched, prepared and went after a dream that only he could make come true. His dream to be part of the 84 Corp of Cadets at Valley Forge Military Academy will set him apart and prepare him for the brightest future that even he could never dream could be possible. Valley Forge Military Academy does make dreams come true.

~Nancy & Bill Minich

Parents of Cadet Christian Minich ’15

The initial impression we had of the Forge’s influence on our cadet was his appearance. His physique had leaned out; his posture was erect and the broadened shoulders offered an indication of the added strength and agility he had acquired in his six week transition.

Our cadet’s confidence was demonstrated in the direct eye contact made when speaking with adults, and peppering his responses with “Sir” and “Ma’am” brought a smile of admiration to our faces. He was clearly more centered and self-assured. We had sent away an average teenager, challenged with trying to establish his identity and understand his place in the world. In welcoming our cadet back home, we saw a young man who understood that his identity was a reflection of the principles he chose to live by. We’ve seen the proof of The Forge’s mental and physical effect, and are very proud of our cadet.

~Sandy & Denise Saddler

Parents of Cadet Sandy B. Saddler ’16

While at Valley Forge, the training and the Cadre were second to none. Although a small community, the one at Valley Forge is tight knit and the comrades you make while there will be your ‘Battles’ for life. I am currently down at Fort Benning, GA attending IBOLC with two good friends of mine whom I commissioned with two and a half years ago (LT. Sexton and LT. FRY). I would highly recommend Valley Forge to anyone who were looking to get a leg in the door towards a great career.

~LT Patrick Fineran ’09C

Graduated VFMAC in May of 09′ with a Commission in the Ohio Army National Guard.

We are writing to express our heartfelt thanks to all the staff at Valley Forge. Our son is graduating in three weeks. It is hard to believe that just two years ago on a very hot August day we left him after in-processing wondering if he would survive plebe training and receive his cap shield. So much has transpired since then. We left a son barely 18, just three months out of high school. Much time past between his visits home but with each one we were amazed at the growth and maturity that had taken place. He was taller, stronger, and more self-confident and was embracing the mission of the college.

He is now a leader in the regimental band as the 1st Lt. One Sunday as the band lead the Corps onto the parade field and his name was announced we had a sense of pride and accomplishment that left a teary eye. We had just left the chapel service with all its pomp and circumstance that leaves one with a sense of pride in being an American. The sun was shining and the campus was bathed in its spring glory. The Sunday chapel speaker had inspired us all and we noticed that our son wanted to keep his own copy of the bulletin. We are grateful that there is an institution that values those things we as parents tried to instill in our children.

We are deeply indebted to many people at The Forge but especially Bandmaster WO2 Phil Evans; Master Sergeant Gillyard and the Tac Officers of the band; Dr. W. Best, advisor; Lini Stevens, Director of Parent Relations and all of the wonderful teachers our son had. It is very apparent that Valley Forge has high expectations for its cadets, not only academically but morally as it enforces character development, personal motivation, leadership and physical development-the five capstones. Most importantly we were impressed that above all, personal responsibility is demanded every day. What better attribute can our young cadets take with them as they leave and go into the work force, the military, or to four-year institutions.

We will miss our trips to Valley Forge but leave knowing that our son and we chose the finest school to spend the first two years of college. We are proud of what he accomplished, how far he came from that hot August day, and know that he will look back years from now and say that he is proud to be an alumnus of Valley Forge.

~ Dr. and Mrs. Jose Hernandez

Parents of 1st Lt. Joseph Hernandez, Band

Today [March 24] is our son [First Captain] Kevin’s 20th birthday and we wanted to express to everyone at VF how grateful we are to all the wonderful people at VF who have taught, mentored, raised, and influenced Kevin these past six years.

We sent him to Valley Forge a good boy of 14 and today he is a fine and excellent man of 20 years that has honor and the best character.

Words cannot express how proud we are of our son, and how grateful we are to Valley Forge.

Please forward this email to the BOT and all your staff because they have all had a part in contributing to the education of our son these past six years and we want them all to know how truly grateful we are and we wish them all to know that the best efforts of the employees at VF do work!

Our son is living proof that when a cadet chooses to follow the guidance of the principles of VF, a good boy/young man will always become an excellent leader with honor and courage of conviction to always do the right thing.

Thank you all for your dedication to the cadets of Valley Forge. The work you all do is important and much appreciated.

– Marty and Tess Lanum, and Larry Fulmer

Parents of First Captain Kevin J. Fulmer ’08C

Service Academy Prep

Service Academy Preparatory Program Details

The Valley Forge Military College Service Academy Preparatory Program (SAP) is about you and your desire to serve the nation. It is not an easy program, and the fact it is not easy is by design. The nation needs, and the academies expect, young people ready to answer the nation’s call and, if need be, serve in harm’s way defending our national interests at home or abroad.

VFMC’s SAP program is guided by each academy’s particular need. VFMC works closely with each federal academy and visits them yearly. We know what is expected at West Point, Annapolis, Colorado Springs, New London or Kings Point. The personalization of the curriculum ensures you will be prepared for your rigorous academic, physical fitness, moral-ethical issues, and leadership challenges that await you at the academy of your choice. Do well at Valley Forge and you are on your way!

All cadets enrolled in the SAP program are assigned a challenging core curriculum much like those taught at the academies. In fact when Desert Storm hero General H. Norman Schwarzkopf attended VFMA&C he enrolled in course entitled “West Point Math” and “West Point English” and those prepared him well for time as a Black Knight on the Hudson.

You will take an English and mathematics placement test designed to position you in the correct environment in preparation for your follow-on studies. You will be required to take either Army or Air Force ROTC while enrolled at VFMC for your Prepster year. Time is allotted, and you are encouraged, to engage in testing orientation and preparation designed to enhance your test scores, if need be. A most aggressive physical fitness regime improves physical aptitude scores. An Academic Advisor who understands the high standards required by all of the service academies guides you. Instructors all realize your goal and are sensitive to assisting you as you hone in on an appointment or placement into the service of your choice. Representatives from the Service Academies often visit VFMC offering guidance and insight into academy life. You are encouraged to participate in the VF athletic programs should you so desire. The Commandant of Cadets welcomes those who prove themselves as leaders to become part of the leadership within the Corps of Cadets.

The Director of the VF SAP program, will take a keen personal interest in you as a leader and future junior officer, challenging you constantly to ensure you are ready for the service academy and beyond.  Erica Diaz, Captain; VFMA&C, Associate Director and International Coordinator, Valley Forge Military Academy Admissions  Office: 610-989-1561

*****

May 20, 2014

We are pleased with our son’s development over the year. He has become more independent and confident in himself. He has learned to adapt and grow as a leader. The school doesn’t pamper go to choate/andover if you want that. Plebe period (6wks) allows for new cadets to show leadership who they are and how they work through challenge as an individual and as a team member. Good luck finding that elsewhere. I was not sure of the school upon first visit, but every time I return, my family is more impressed. My son was an above average student before VFMA and got by easily. He has pride in himself/work/accomplishments now and is more resilient. A lesson< I’d rather have him learn now then while in college or after. You really cannot compare VFMA to another boarding school without similar components. They are completely different creatures. Lots of international students, so parent involvement is remote-nearby parents could be better rallied/involved. My only complaint.

 

PARENT REVIEWS – submitted by a parent

May 15, 2014

I’m impressed with the changes my son has made in his first year at this school. I know a public high school was not the right choice for him. They are fair to students with discipline issues, and hold them accountable. Another parent mentioned inconsequential issues ( not sure what that means)resulting in dismissal of a few cadets; I feel that says a lot for the school. They hold to the set standard and remove students that are not following the oath they took when they arrived. Not everyone should get rewarded for just showing up- ridiculous , entitled and a sad future generation. I think this sets the school a part from a public school which keeps problematic students with kids just trying to get a good education.
