At Valley Forge Military Academy, our exemplary education paired with the military structure and discipline that shapes the whole young man is unmatched. 

Our dedicated faculty and staff work tirelessly to impart the values that will ensure his success after high school and beyond, both educationally and personally. While we are confident that a Valley Forge education is the most valuable investment you can make in your son’s future, we also understand that it can be a considerable financial commitment, and may not be within reach for every family. We are dedicated to assisting families through need-based financial aid and scholarships as we strive to make sure that a VFMA education is accessible to all.



  • After you have submitted an application and your son has been accepted into the #ForgeFamily, you may use our Clarity application to apply for financial aid. Clarity determines a family’s level of financial need based on the information submitted in the application.
  • To get started, please go to the Clarity Application and create an account. At the end of the application, there is a $60 fee to submit.
  • Any family who wishes to be considered for any scholarships, grants, or financial aid must complete a financial aid application through Clarity. This aid is limited, and will be re-evaluated year to year.
