    There are many ways that you can stay in touch with Vermont Academy, and volunteering a little of your time is an excellent way to do so! Here are some of the ways in which you can help Vermont Academy while keeping on top of the latest things happening on campus.
  • Alumni Admissions Volunteers

    If you know of someone considering independent secondary school, keep Vermont Academy in mind! If you want to work with the Admissions Office, you may be asked to attend a school fair near you or interview prospective students and families who cannot make it to campus for a visit. You may also be asked to call student candidates in your geographical area or who share one of your interests.

  • Andrew Chardain '05

    Drafting a Career in Architecture: Andrew Chardain ’05

    Andrew Chardain ’05 quickly realized that he was in his element at Vermont Academy because the campus has the same rural feel as his hometown, Newfane, VT. His mother played an essential role in Andrew’s high-school decision-making process because of the freedom she gave him to choose. There was not one singular program she wanted him to follow and knew that if he followed his intuition, it would lead to the best path for him. She gave him that push by essentially saying the world was his oyster. Andrew’s visit with the admissions team at the time showed him the possibilities that VA could offer. “The decision of where to go, I don’t think it was a difficult one,” recalls Andrew. “I just don’t think there was another school that offered what VA had.”

  • One Day for VA Success and Gratitude

    Thank you to everyone who joined us to celebrate One Day for VA this year. 385 donors made gifts totaling more than $150,000! Not only did it surpass last year’s participation, but this support helps drive us closer to achieving our annual giving goal of $1.3 million for the fiscal year that ends on June 30. With heartfelt thanks to the two members of our constituency (an anonymous donor and Chris Sinclair '67) who created challenge gifts. These challenges ignited the competitive Wildcat streak and spurred many additional gifts.
