Our Grads Rule

Graduate of Army ROTC ECP

Currently studying at Northeastern University

“During my time at Valley Forge I studied Health and Biological Sciences and I was a cadet Major who served as the Regimental Public Affairs Officer. The school provided me with many mentors and opportunities to better myself. Thanks to the ECP program, I am attending Northeastern University and studying biology on a full scholarship!”

Positioned for Success

We have a long tradition of graduating leaders with the self-discipline, personal character, knowledge, and motivation to excel in a broad range of careers. The military structure and discipline of the College lay a foundation for our graduates to succeed in a four-year college, in the workforce, or in military service. And cadets may pursue a degree either as commuter students or residents on campus.

Valley Forge Military College is the only college in the northeast with an Army ROTC Early Commissioning Program. This program gives cadets the rare opportunity to be commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army by the end of their sophomore year.
