When I went to Valley Forge I was welcomed just like any guest should be . They made sure I understood what was going on and what I would be going through . You can just tell that the staff is there for you .
Valley Forge military College is a wonderful school filled with rich history/memorabelia strict criteria that challenges students to strive for a higher purpose the student teacher ratio is really great on average there is an 16 to 1 ratio during classtimes there alot of interaction with student teacher
it is kind of annoying to schedule classes here, since it is so small there are not many different times you can take a class for example i had to take my science class at 8 am twice a week because that is the only time it was offered

i am not sure because i still have another year here
there are only a few majors here and most classes are taught like high school, most teachers are very strict about the attendance policy which is you cannot miss more than 3 or 4 classes then you fail. some teachers do not care if you are in uniform or not but others will not even let you in class if you are not in uniform. the class sizes are small usually around 15-25 and the school is very small so you get to know all the professors and usually have all of them for at least one class
the only good thing about going to this school is it is a military school and after 2 years you can transfer almost anywhere you want if you have good or average grades.
most of the teachers live close or on campus so you can schedule appointments with them easily but it is easy to get distracted in class here because only some people actually want to be here and some do not care about the classes at all
there are many good things about this school like the ecp progam if you want to go to the army. i am in d troop which is the equestrian company so i think that is a lot of fun and not all schools have that. there are also many things that could be better here like the food, communication, and the tuition is way too high for what we get, right now the tuition is 49,000 a year and almost everything here needs to be updated
Make a list for yourself about the finacial aid you have submitted and check it over when you are done. I would make myself a canidate for scholarships by submitting applications that impress judges and the more effort you put in the greater the reward will be for you scholarships. Make sure you keep a file on everything you apply for and try to stay organized.
It makes you prepared for the outside world. Its helps you realize that you have to focus on your school work. This school gives you a schedule that will help stay in shape and be prepared for any hardships that come your way. Your have to do a mandatory pt test that includes running miles, push ups, obstacle courses and much more. You will get a dose a learning how to maintain a strong military barring by learning the ways of the military and how they do things. They will teach you how to march how speak to certain person with rank with no sir and yes sir. They are very strict on everybody to do the right thing when told and follow rules. You will also learn ways of how the army does things to. This college will help you appreciate everything in the outside world and make you a lot more prepared in the future than just a regular person going to college..
Most of my professors are very, very knowledgeable and the small numbers makes student-teacher interaction very good. All the teachers here want you to succeed and will do anything they can to help you do so.
There is no room for any kind of problems that might show up; you have to just push through the course on its apparently unchangeable schedule.
With this being a military school there wasn't much flexibility at all when it came to scheduling.
I just changed my major from humanities to business. My international business class is very interesting and my micro economics class teaches me business on a smaller scale.
If you decide to enter into the early commisoning program, you will start the military with rank.
They have nice majors,
Criminal Justice is popular.
They can really screw you over. If you are in for the ECP program you may not get much.
If youre in band, good for you. tuition is paid.
If you're a normal cadet..lmao...
If you are a prepster, you are paying for location.

Academics are ok. The barracks you live in are cadet(you) cleaned which leads to horrible latrine conditions. Most of the cadets are in the early commission program of sponsored by a federal service academy and have a purpose to stay through any extended period of time here. If you don't fall into one of those groups of people listed above. You're better off looking else where because the military aspect here is not what you'd think it'd be its for some but not for all I do not recommend it most people.
Classes were some what easy but i was able to learn from them. The material is basic and it helps to be understandable and easy to comprehend.
It is a very expensive school that even though it does reach some of its hype, it is alot of money for what they offer. They're facilities are not up to part with the amount of money that is coming in and i believe i could be greatly improved.
