Valley Forge offers scholarship for disabled vets' sons

Valley Forge Military Academy is launching a new scholarship for the sons of disabled or deceased U.S. military veterans. 

The fund, in partnership with the NewDay USA Foundation, will cover most of the cost of attendance for new or returning students entering 7th through 9th grades.  Tuition, room and board, and school fees total nearly $40,000 a year.

"Many of our nation’s veterans’ families are living well below their honor and dignity, and a gift of tuition to these families from NewDay USA provides the opportunity for their sons to obtain a top-notch education at a prestigious, private military school," the academy wrote in a press release.

The academy also offers several other scholarships, merit-based aid, and tax-credits for Pennsylvania residents.  The academy serves only male students in grades 7 through 12.  Female cadets are accepted in the college.
