Valley Forge Educational Services

Valley Forge Educational Services (VFES) offers a continuum of educational, recreational and employment-related services for people with disabilities, ages 5-24. VFES is committed to helping students and participants develop a strong sense of self-worth to realize their value as contributing members of the community through its two signature programs: The Vanguard School and Adult and Recreation Services (ARS). The Vanguard School was the first Pennsylvania-licensed Approved Private School (APS).

Established in 1959, The Vanguard School serves approximately 250 students, 5–21 years of age, who require a high degree of individualized attention, clinical supports and intervention, including those with autism spectrum disorders, developmental disabilities, speech-language deficits and students who experience social-emotional, executive functioning and behavioral difficulties. Adult and Recreation Services offers educational, employment and recreational programming for young people, 7–24 years of age, with disabilities and learning challenges.

Community Love 

“We have seen my granddaughter blossom and develop a love for school since she began attending Vanguard. It is so heartwarming to know that here she is seen as someone with potential in contrast to her previous school where they held out no expectations for her. That means so much to all of us.” -Lynn T.

    I just wanted to extend a grateful and appreciative thank you for all you are doing for our daughter and family during this pandemic. Our daughter’s teacher Lauren Fischbein is the most energized, fun and exciting teacher! Our daughter is meeting her goals and surpassing them daily, thanks to Lauren. The other members of our daughter’s team, including physical therapist Dr. Johanna Spangenberg, occupational therapist Marybeth Campoli, speech pathologist Dana Haro, and music teacher Jamie Trotty have gone above and beyond in supporting our daughter and helping us to help her find her voice. Finally, we are so grateful for the Administration who have put this strong team together and kept it together through this challenging time. Thank you!
