Through Vermont Academy's community service program, students go beyond the boundaries of the classroom, find meaningful ways to connect to the larger community, and develop the skills and attitudes of responsible citizenship. Service is an integral part of students' educational journey and is incorporated into classroom and extracurricular activities.
Students are required to complete a certain number of hours of service per year, although many students exceed the required number of hours. We promote many opportunities and encourage students and staff to participate. Campus-based activities include the Blood Drive, Peer Tutoring, Kurn Hattin Christmas Party, and other endeavors. Off-campus opportunities include mentoring at two local primary schools, helping and visiting some of our elderly citizens, volunteering with area social service agencies, and many more possibilities.
