The Vermont Academy Way

Vermont Academy teachers believe that the value of learning and knowledge cannot be fully realized if confined to the traditional classroom alone.  We cultivate a learning culture where our students’ individuality and ingenuity, our land, and our community liberate learning and knowledge for use in life. 

Therefore, Vermont Academy teachers employ a design-thinking mindset to provide educational experiences where students:
  • apply knowledge and creativity in authentic contexts to create real-world solutions.
  • explore knowledge inherent in our land to expand their understanding of our planet. 
  • engage with our community as stewards of equity and understanding.   
  • know they are valued, cared for, and given every opportunity to grow.
