Valley Forge Military College

The Military College of Pennsylvania™

Along with its prep school, offering studies for grades 7 – 12, VFMC has a long tradition of fostering personal growth through a unique, comprehensive system built on Five Cornerstones: Academic Excellence, Personal Motivation, Character Development, Physical Development, and Leadership.

Whether your ambitions are rooted in their rich military traditions or shaped by your scholarly endeavors, you are invited to explore all that they have to offer. They 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.

Although they are a military school, the end result is not necessarily to pursue a career in the military – though nearly 40% of graduates pursue a military career, such is not necessarily the end result. The VFMC “military model” is, at its core, a structured way to teach students life skills that will propel them ahead of their peers. Noted alumni in other fields include  J.D. Salinge and Julian Peterson.

Programs of Study

The college curriculum combines six core competencies with five academic programs and concentrations to provide a foundation of understanding, knowledge, and skills. The core competencies broaden each student’s perspective and connection to academic work and careers for the 21st century. These social, historical, and scientific contexts develop and prepare students to transfer to competitive four year programs at local, regional, national, and international institutions.
