    "We are pleased with our son's development over the year. He has become more independent and confident in himself. He has learned to adapt and grow as a leader. The school doesn't pamper go to choate/andover if you want that. Plebe period (6wks) allows for new cadets to show leadership who they are and how they work through challenge as an individual and as a team member. Good luck finding that elsewhere. I was not sure of the school upon first visit, but every time I return, my family is more impressed. My son was an above average student before VFMA and got by easily. He has pride in himself/work/accomplishments now and is more resilient. A lesson< I'd rather have him learn now then while in college or after. You really cannot compare VFMA to another boarding school without similar components. They are completely different creatures. Lots of international students, so parent involvement is remote-nearby parents could be better rallied/involved. My only complaint."

    "I'm impressed with the changes my son has made in his first year at this school. I know a public high school was not the right choice for him. They are fair to students with discipline issues, and hold them accountable. Another parent mentioned inconsequential issues ( not sure what that means)resulting in dismissal of a few cadets; I feel that says a lot for the school. They hold to the set standard and remove students that are not following the oath they took when they arrived. Not everyone should get rewarded for just showing up- ridiculous , entitled and a sad future generation. I think this sets the school a part from a public school which keeps problematic students with kids just trying to get a good education."

    "I am currently a cadet at VFMAC. I came to VF with a prior drug problem and knew I needed discipline. When I came to VF it met my expectations. Within a year I can honestly say that I am the disciplined young man that I have always wanted to be. The Faculty and staff will support you no matter what. My sophemore year at public school I scored a 1430 on the SAT's. After a year at VF I surpassed my goals by scoring a 1950. VF has geared me for success and now in my senior year I can honestly say I have a bright future in front of me. My whole life I have grown up in a neighborhood where the majority of people barely graduate highschool. My parents had to take out a morgage on their house in order to put me through VF and it was worth it. Every day I thank the faculty and staff for all they have done for me and I am proud to say I am a cadet at the Most prestigious military school in the country!"

    "VFMAC is what you make out of it. Like what was stated in several other reviews, you must be motivated and self-disciplined to succeed in this school. However, the reason for many people who come to VFMAC is to attain those qualities. For those who aren't motivated and self-disciplined, you will NOT gain those qualities by coming here because they won't help you if you begin failing. They simply punish you more and let you fall deeper into the pit of desolation until your future is ruined by drugs, social pressure, and bad grades. I've seen it happen here. If you are motivated to do well, then by all means, join VFMAC; but there are other schools that can develop your traits better. Also, many of the military responsibilities are given to people who can't be responsible for themselves (often their grades are worse than the people they lead) so they just lead you to be worse."

    "We enrolled our son for his junior year at Valley Forge Military Academy and were completely disappointed. When we spoke with the admissions office we were assured that if our son had any academic problems the school would provide the needed support. That never happened. We had to arrange on our own for one of the other students to help tutor our son and paid this student ourselves. There is also a complete lack of leadership from the school. They have had several changes at the top and I see again that they have an "acting" president of the school. The physical plant is very run down and the school has a very small endowment. I believe this is due to the lack of alumni support. Yes, some students do well and go onto to the 4 service academies. However, I spoke with many students when I visited my son and very few provided positive feedback. If I had to make the decision again I would not send my son to Valley Forge. There are other options which you should look at. This is not one to recommend."
