Since Vermont Academy is primarily a boarding school in nature, the residential life program is an integral part of our students' lives. Living with peers and teachers on a daily basis strengthens the relationships within our community. Dorm parents work in conjunction with dorm leaders to plan weekly meetings. These gatherings in the dorm common rooms provide opportunities for the dorm to gather and discuss community living, any challenges that have arisen within the house, or activities students are hoping to plan for their residence.
Whether you live in a small dorm or large, each of them offers a safe and comfortable "home away from home" atmosphere that encourages respect, personal responsibility, cooperation, and teamwork.
