Family Weekend 2023

Vermont Academy: Family Weekend 2023
Vermont Academy is so pleased to welcome you!

We are a close-knit community and we feel privileged to guide students toward a life that reflects care, concern, and a desire to make a difference in the world. We truly value our relationship with parents, grandparents, and other family members as our partners in this mission. 

Vermont Academy has designed this page to be a resource for any information you might need to know about your student's life at Vermont Academy. We also welcome phone calls, e-mails, and visits!  

Our password-protected parent portal is a source of information just for you, containing calendars, forms, the school calendar, and your student’s official academic record. This is also where you can update your contact information. 

Staying Informed
Every day at Vermont Academy is full of transformational activity and so we want you to feel a part of it!  
  • On Fridays, we will send an electronic family newsletter with important information for the week.
  • Our Vermont Academy Facebook and Instagram pages are wonderful resources. We hope you will choose to follow them! The Flickr page also is updated frequently with photos of our students and their activities.

Vermont Academy Parents Association
The Vermont Academy Parents Association (VAPA) warmly welcomes you to our wonderful school! All parents and guardians of current students are members of VAPA.
  • Participation in VAPA is a way for families to support the Vermont Academy community and enhance the student educational experience. 
  • Throughout the year, VAPA works closely with Vermont Academy to support and host activities including parent Zoom calls with VA Leadership, Family Weekend, faculty appreciation events, athletic activity support, class calls led by VAPA Class reps, admissions programming, fundraising, and much more. 

We’d love to have you join our team!  Please volunteer… for a day, a week, a month, a year. Chair an event, assist with fundraising, or anything in between -- we can always use your help.  Participation with VAPA offers a wonderful opportunity to meet other parents while supporting your child at Vermont Academy.

If you have any questions about VAPA, please contact VAPA President, Jennifer Palmiotto P ’21, P’24, at jenopalm[at] or Tonia Fleming P '18, Director of Advancement and VAPA liaison at tfleming[at] We look forward to meeting you.
