Forging Boys into Young Men

The Valley Forge will provide guidance on education integrity and strategic direction, sharing experience and resources as necessary and appropriate. The Valley Forge has been in operation for nearly 100 years providing a rich tradition of educational excellence and personal development that has produced many alumni that have gained international prominence ranging from Presidents of countries and prominent professional athletes as well as many successful Qatari graduates.
John English serves as the Chairman of the VFMAC Board of Trustees. He is also the Chief Executive Officer of Heartland Consulting which he founded in 2009. Mr English manages and oversees all operations regarding government and commercial clients across several different fields.
