  • How You Can Be Involved

    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 Council

    Andrew Ward ’93 and Tom Oxholm ’82 are co-chairs of the Alumni Council. VA's Alumni Council works to connect alumni to each other and to Vermont Academy. The Council consists of alumni volunteers from different classes and geographical areas who work to promote the VA connection both on campus and around the country. They also share the alumni perspective with the Administration and the Board of Trustees with the hope of advancing VA's mission.
  • Class Representatives

    Sean Bersell ’77 is the Class Rep Chair. Class reps have three important job responsibilites. They are to:
    • CONNECT— keep class spirit alive through calls, emails, social networking, thank you notes, and/or class notes; send an annual letter to classmates; actively seek to find lost alumni/ae and capture email addresses for all classmates. Coordinate class involvement in Reunion Weekend.
    • GIVE — set an example by giving annually at the beginning of the fiscal year.
    • ASK — others to join you in supporting Vermont Academy financially.
  • 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.

  • Winter Greetings from Dr. Zaccara

    Dear Vermont Academy Alumni,
    As I write, the wind is whistling around Fuller Hall, and it sounds like a scene out of Dr. Zhivago. This is our last week of school before Winter Break, and we are all walking around with glowing faces and red cheeks in the cold morning air, and with a sense of excitement about our upcoming holiday plans.
