Student Life

The VA Community

Our community is center to every we do at Vermont Academy and makes us a place like no other. By providing a small and supportive community our students feel known and are encouraged to grow and discover their voice. The lessons we impart in the classroom and dorms, on the fields and stage, provide our students with an education for life.
“Vermont Academy to me is all about community. The main reason I chose VA and the main reason I love it is because of our accepting, friendly, caring community. Whether it be students, coaches, or teachers, everyone is always there to support you and help you with whatever you need.” - Zoee ’19
