To say that our son Alex '20 loves Vermont Academy would be an extreme understatement. He really appreciates his teachers' active interaction outside of the classroom, the great friendships he has developed (for the first time, he has a "group of friends" versus "a friend"), the independence of being away from home in the beautiful area of Saxtons River, and the list goes on and on. Words cannot properly express my appreciation for all that the faculty and staff do and who they are as people. From my interaction, as well as Alex's expression, they are "all-in," sincerely nurturing students in a mentoring way and holding them accountable in a caring manner inside and outside of the classroom. We could not have imagined this opportunity being so amazing.
