Valley Forge is what you make it. You will get back what you put in! It has one of the best ROTC programs in the country, and since the ECP program is fast paced- if you cannot manage your time well then you will fail and thus make yourself miserable. Those who thrive and find opportunities at school are rewarded. The Cybersecurity and Security Studies program taught by Professors such as Deucker, Kennedy, and Dr. Catagnus is top notch! KOP is a beautiful and safe area with many places for cadets to visit in their free time. Facilities (Dorming, The Boodle, Library) have improved drastically over the past few years, as well as the food. The school is completely ROTC focused, so cadets are always being mentally and physically challenged; there are multiple gyms and tracks for cadets to utilize. VFMC is 100% what you put into it, and the rewards outweigh the cons.
Valley Forge Military College has its ups and downs but it is overall a very good college especially with its security studies program. The professors care about your education in class and the military environment provides a well mannered and disciplined environment. The dorms and mess hall need improvement, the dorms have signs of damage and don't have air conditioning. The mess hall food doesn't have much variety and the food taste mediocre at best. For a two year college the tuition is expensive and close to the amount of what some 4 year colleges but the financial aid provided from VFMC does cover most of the costs.There is an on campus security but as for door and gate locks the campus does have a number of vulnerabilities. I would recommend this college for those planning on joining the Army, pursuing a career in Homeland Security, and or prefer working in a military environment.
Valley Forge is one of the most prestigious military academies with a great ROTC program. Moreover, the staff is here to help with academic support making sure no child is left behind regardless of busy schedules or personal issues. Moreover, the environment around valley forge is very quiet and has magnificent scenery with a massive entertainment area within walking distance. The school has a massive resource to help promote the success of students future academics through the use of a highly diverse library and databases at no cost to students. Although we are a military school, the result is not necessary to pursue a career in the military – though nearly 40% of our graduates will choose this path. The VFMC “military model” is, at its core, a structured way to teach students life skills that will propel them ahead of their peers.
