Summer Matters

A Program of Valley Forge Educational Services


  • Giving Tuesday

    We have a special day for giving thanks and we have two for getting deals. Now, we have Giving Tuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. Tuesday, December 1, 2015, people around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
    Valley Forge Educational Services relies on generous friends like you to contribute to the innovative programming that benefits our wonderful students. Such programming includes our new Read to Pet Pals literacy program, offered to all Vanguard students. Students have the opportunity to read to the therapy animals in a stress-free and judgment-free environment while reaping the calming benefits of these gentle and attentive animals.
