Why is accreditation important?
Because the Valley Forge Online High School experience is designed to provide a full high school diploma, and not an equivalency or certificate, we hold ourselves and our curriculum to the absolute highest standards in terms of content, structure, and educational benchmarks.
One of the ways in which we ensure this through earning and maintaining accreditation with top governing and advisory organizations within the education sector. We regularly pursue and renew these accreditations to stay up-to-date with the latest standards and expectations for strong academic quality. We also make it a point to hold accreditation that apply to online, distance, and traditional high school models so that the Valley Forge Military Academy Online High School platform consistently delivers an educational experience that meets or exceeds the standards for any and all high schools nationwide.
