Advisors serve as student motivator, advocate and facilitator of communications between the many adults who have contact with your student at VA. The advisor is responsible for addresing concerns, and communicates with the student and parent(s) in a timely manner.
New students will be able to pick classes on-line after July 1. Returning students work with their advisors to create the following year's schedule at the end of the second semester. To choose courses online, click here.
A great deal of effort is made to fit students into an appropriate range and level of academic courses to prepare for college. Despite this effort, sometimes there is an inappropriate placement. Remedying such a situation generally involves discussions between the student, the course instructor, and the Academic Dean. There is a clearly defined one-week add/drop period at the beginning of each semester. Situations that arise during the semester are handled through the Studies Office.
Grades and comments are available to the end of each quarter. Access is available online to these grades and other valuable information through NetClassroom. If you have lost or forgotten your password to NetClassroom, please send an email to: IT@vermontacademy.org .
Difficulties with a course should be discussed with the advisor as the first step. If it is determined that a student is properly placed in the course, then the next most likely step is to see if our learning skills program can offer support. Learn more about this at Learning Skills.
