Welcome Alumni

The Vermont Academy Alumni Association (VAAA), comprised of every matriculated student who’s class has graduated, numbers over 4,000 members spanning 9 decades. Each member is a valued part of the alumni community and together, we are VA. 

The purpose of the VAAA is to strengthen and support Vermont Academy through the cultivation of an engaged, informed, and inspired alumni community. 

In pursuit of this purpose, the VAAA: 
  • Brings alumni together to advance the interests and welfare of the school;
  • Fosters strong bonds among alumni and between alumni and Vermont Academy;
  • Promotes alumni involvement in the life of the school including alumni programs and activities, annual giving, and general support of VA; and
  • Communicates regularly with members and share positive Academy news.

There are so many ways to get involved with your alma mater. Whether you attend events, volunteer, support alumni-owned businesses, shop at the school store, dive into VA news, or want to nominate a peer for special recognition, there’s so much to explore.

  • 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.
