  • Reunion Giving

    Reunion 2023 is an opportunity to come together to celebrate each other, as well as the faculty and education that has made Vermont Academy an exceptional place. It is also an opportunity for our proud alumni to shine as leaders in philanthropy for the school.

    Vermont Academy invites you to step up, make a difference, and support all that contributes to making Vermont Academy such a special place. During the last fiscal year, alumni giving accounted for more than half of our annual giving goal. And in general, alumni giving has long been the decisive action supporting our current students and keeping Vermont Academy strong for the future.  

    Commemorative benches, made with wood from the former Fuller Hall stairs, will be awarded to the milestone Reunion classes (those classes ending in 3 or 8) with the highest participation in giving and the highest overall dollars donated. Plus, donors who attend Reunion or make a gift during Reunion will receive a special Vermont Academy lapel pin to proudly acknowledge their support.

    Make your reunion gift online or you may mail a check payable to Vermont Academy to PO Box 500, Saxtons River, VT 05154.

    Please contact Director of Advancement Tonia Fleming P ’18 at 802-869-6298 or if you have any questions about supporting Vermont Academy with a Reunion gift.
  • Reunion Outreach Committee

  • Reunion 2022 Recap and Photos

    About 100 alumni and friends gathered on a beautiful spring weekend to celebrate their shared love of Vermont Academy during the 2022 Reunion festivities from June 3 to 5. In a post-Reunion survey, one attendee shared that the thing they most enjoyed was, “Catching up with classmates and seeing some people for the first time since graduating was definitely the highlight. Events like the dinner and bonfire were great for facilitating this.” Another responded to the same question with, “Seeing old friends and classmates. Returning to my home town Saxtons River!” Read the full Reunion 2022 recap.

The safety of Reunion attendees and the VA community is our first priority. We ask for and expect that all visitors will be free of any symptoms of illness. 

Reunion attendees may choose whether they would like to wear a mask. Each individual is encouraged to make the best decision to support their personal well-being and comfort. Attendees should respect one another's decisions with regard to masking.

Those who test positive prior to Reunion should plan to follow the isolation and precautions for people with COVID-19 guidelines on the CDC website. Note that mask-wearing may be required in these instances. 

Plans are subject to change as we continue to monitor the recommendations of the CDC, the State of Vermont, and the Health Services of Vermont Academy. Further COVID-19 protocols will be shared on this page as needed.
Please reach out to us at with your Reunion questions.
