Valley Forge Military College is a private, co-educational, residential college that offers the freshman and sophomore years of college. The primary mission of the VFMC is to prepare students for transfer to competitive four-year colleges and universities.
Established in 1935, VFMC has a long tradition of fostering personal growth through a comprehensive system built on the five cornerstones that make Valley Forge unique: academic excellence, character development, personal motivation, physical development, and leadership to all students regardless of race, creed, or national origin.
The diverse student body represents more than 31 states and 35 countries. VFMC has an excellent transfer record, with 95 percent of cadets accepted to their first or second choice schools. More than 63 percent were admitted to the top-tier schools in the country.
Valley Forge Military College is one of only five schools in the country, and the only college in the northeastern United States that offers qualified freshmen the opportunity to participate in the Army ROTC Early Commissioning Program, leading to a commission as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army Reserves or Army National Guard at the end of their sophomore year.
The U.S. Air Force Academy, the U.S. Military Academy, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, and the U.S. Naval Academy have all sponsored cadets through their Foundation Scholarship Programs and other programs to attend Valley Forge Military College as a preparatory step to gaining admission to the service academies.
