HARRISBURG, Nov. 8, 2013 — State Sen. John Blake announced today he is looking for an appointee to the Valley Forge Military Academy & College in suburban Philadelphia.

Valley Forge Military Academy & College partners with Sen. Blake and other Pennsylvania lawmakers to award one appointment from each legislative district to the two-year military academy in Wayne.

“This is a golden opportunity for a girl or boy in my district to get a head start in a career that is both honorable and dignified,” Blake said. “But entry into this program is very competitive.”

The Valley Forge Military Academy & College educates students in an academic and military environment to prepare them for a four-year college or university education. The accredited 78-year-old institution enrolls more than 300 cadets each year.

The school’s early commissioning program featured by Sen. Blake gives one student the opportunity to earn a military commission as second lieutenant in the U.S. Army after two years of attendance and participation.

To be considered as a Valley Forge Military Academy & College appointee, a student must carry a minimum 2.5 GPA, a combined SAT score of at least 1,000 (or 21 on the ACT), pass a Department of Defense medical exam, be at least 17 years old, and be a U.S. citizen “with good moral character.”

Applications for this appointment can be found in high school guidance offices or by calling Sen. Blake’s district office at 570-207-2881.
