Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at VA

Vermont Academy dedicates itself to creating an environment in which all people—regardless of gender, marital status, sexual orientation, political orientation, ideology, physical disability, ethnicity, economic level, age, or religion—can feel comfortable and thrive.

Through diversity, we ensure richness within our Academy community and celebrate that we are part of a global community comprised of many different kinds of people.

A commitment to diversity requires that each member of Vermont Academy’s community examine attitudes and beliefs about differences and shed those that are inappropriate. It also requires that our behavior demonstrate respect and appreciation of differences.
Vermont Academy is a coed college preparatory boarding and day school in southern Vermont, serving grades 9-12 plus a postgraduate year.
