Open House // My VA Day

4 Very Special Dates To Check Out Campus!
Explore our beautiful campus while meeting faculty and students.

Step onto campus and experience for yourself what makes Vermont Academy unique. Connect with our dedicated faculty and get a sneak peek into life as a Wildcat.

You can take a tour of campus, shadow a class, have lunch with our community, and learn about the Vermont Academy experience from faculty and students! We’ve created a safe space, rich in endless opportunity, where students are known, heard, and happy to learn. 

These days are designed for you and your family to discover what Vermont Academy has to offer. It’s the time to jump in, ask questions, and learn about the opportunities and programs that interest you!

You'll find we're conveniently located in southern Vermont, just north of Brattleboro and Putney. We're just 30 minutes over the southern state line.

We hope to see you here!
