List of 7 items.

  • ESL Program

    We offer two levels of English as a Second Language depending on the students fluency. ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) is for international students who are new to the English language, while EIS (English for International Students) is for international students who have a better grasp of the English language.

    During the first week of school students will take a placement test to determine which class they are placed in.
  • Orientation

    All new International Students attend our Jumpstart Orientation program, which takes place from August 27-31. During this time our new International Students will recuperate from jet lag, get a better understanding of campus, take their ESL and math placement tests, meet with teachers, and have a chance to purchase things for their dorms and classes.
  • Academic Support

    Along with our ESL program, we have our International Resource Center (IRC) Peer Tutoring Program, which allows international students to receive help in their classes from upperclassman international students. International students must apply to become an IRC tutor.
    We also provide TOEFL, SAT and ACT test registration, as well as test day transportation.
  • Health Insurance

    Vermont Academy requires all international students are to have medical insurance within the United States. Insurance plans issued from a country outside the United States may not have full coverage in the U.S.

    10 month plan: $2,160
    12 month plan: $2,375 (international students only)
  • Vacations and Travel

    During fall and winter long weekends International students may choose to stay on campus. Students who choose to stay will participate in activities, trips, and receive supervision. All students must leave campus for our Thanksgiving, winter and spring breaks. During these breaks many students will travel home or homestay with a friend.

    Vermont Academy helps students coordinate travel to and from campus around breaks, including airport pick-up or drop-off to Boston’s Logan International Airport, Hartford’s Bradley International Airport. Students will also receive help organizing travel paperwork from our International Student Coordinator.
