Visiting the College

students take tour of campus
At Valley Forge Christian College we offer three unique opportunities to visit. Each can be valuable as you explore your life and educational options and gather important information about living and learning as part of the VFCC community. While our Breakaways are popular and draw hundreds of students, take a moment to consider each option and to see which is best for you. All events are free. Explore our interactive campus map before visiting us. For a list of accommodations in close proximity to VFCC, click here.

 

Breakaway

Breakaway is a 24-hour overnight experience for high school students. You can attend a variety of classes, daily chapel, meet faculty and staff, and participate in information sessions and other planned activities. You will also spend the night in our residence halls, socialize and dine with our current students. While there is no charge, you will have to register at least one week in advance. Breakaways are offered twice each fall and once each spring.
