Love this school! I would not have my children anywhere else. My children come home from school singing songs to the Lord. I thank God everyday for placing this church and school in our lives.

As a student of this school i would recommend Valley Forge Baptist Academy to anyone who wants to make a diffrence in the world. Yes there are rules, yes there is authority, and yes they do have high standards but whats wrong with any of that? This is a school that puts God first and has students that take the initiative when it comes to placing God first in their life

This is an outstanding school! By far one of the best! The principal is amazing! (So are the pastors.) Yes, the rules are tough, but guess what? I've never had to worry about gangs, school shootings, teachers after my child, etc. When your leaders answer to God, you have success!

I have had over a decade of experience with this school - we are thrilled with the education our children are getting - our oldest qualified for a scholarship with taking the SATs for the first time! More importantly, we are excited about the Christian leaders they are becoming. The graduating seniors have shone as leaders and examples at their various colleges!

I brought my child here because the school has small classes and uses A_Beka curriculum starting in Preschool, but the school has extremely tight oppresive rules, and no child of this school will ever be a leader. Their initiative is supressed, they are over protected, and they are not encouraged to learned anything to be successful in the outside world. Recommended only to those who would limit their choices to church ministry.

I have had a great deal of experience with this school and staff. Outstanding in every area! The elemntary curriculum is the Abeka which is a challenging for some.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
