Valley Forge Military Academy

Private Boarding School – Wayne , Pennsylvania

Valley Forge Military Academy is a Boarding and Day School that welcomes young men from 7th through 12th grades, and postgraduate. But that does not begin to really describe the school experience. At Valley Forge, they think young men grow not just through their diet, but though a steady diet of challenges. And, like diamonds, shine best when every facet is polished. That’s why a Valley Forge education is not just about academics. It’s about developing the whole person, relying on five traditional cornerstones on which Valley Forge has built its international reputation.

Since 1928, a Valley Forge education has been built around subjects most schools have forgotten to address – character development, personal motivation and leadership - the very skills students need to rise to the top of whatever field they choose to pursue. High School Students have the opportunity to obtain a diploma from the high school as well as an Associate Degree from the VFMA College.

A school where students are encouraged to set goals and strive for excellence, while developing leadership skills and a sense of individual responsibility. Welcome to Valley Forge Military Academy!
