    Valley Forge Academics:

    A challenging curriculum, dedicated faculty, small classes and individual attention provide cadets an intense individualized learning experience. Academy teachers do more than teach, they are selected not just for their professional credentials but for their tireless dedication. Faculty members take an active interest in every student’s life. They supervise and assist students in their mandatory evening study periods and work overtime as athletic coaches and advisers of extracurricular activities. In short, they care.

    We recognize that all cadets learn differently. Therefore, we offer a three-tiered approach to academic rigor, setting each cadet up for success. The Academy offers Advanced Placement, Honors and College Prep level coursework, and an intensive English Language Institute. Qualified Academy cadets attend college classes at Valley Forge Military College and Cabrini University.
