Valley Forge Military College Reviews

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.
The students are disrespectful and childish. No one takes anything seriously. If you're looking for a military school this should be low on your list. Although everything seems trashy, the campus itself is beautiful and there are always some amazing people to meet that are a part of the student body. There are plenty of resources to help struggling students pass any class.
