University of Valley Forge was founded in 1939 and is part of an international network of Assemblies of God colleges and universities.

A private university with undergraduate, graduate and lifelong learning programs, our mission is to prepare individuals for a life of service and leadership in the church and in the world.

Our community is small and close-knit but diverse. Each member—student, faculty and staff—supports and guides each other as we grow and develop intellectually, physically, spiritually and socially.

Our community offers education in everything from digital media to missions.
